I deal with it daily from leavin the house gettin in the car or even what people would call normal activites around the h ouse..

i can sit here and go on and on !!!...

what hurts me the most since i have bipolar type 1 when i am in my manic stages of all over the place thats when i lose my battle with my panic its a double issue... When my mind is racing so fast and i cant tell whats real or am i still asleep ... then i freak out even more and here comes the panic train the joy of thinkin ya havin a heart attack .. your arms tingle and hurt ya chest feels like its gonna erupt and ya heart is racing like a stock car and you begin to sweat ...

so right now they have me on

zyprexa 10 mg

depakote er 1000mg

paxil 50 mg

clonazepam .5 mg

i feel like i take a cocktail of pills every day just to keep what little of sanity i have left..

----well i just wanna thank the gods aka forum makers for a place like this to let ya know ya aint alone in your struggles

Hiya hon,

is it your anxiety OR your bipolar disorder that is causing you to freak out right now? my anxiety disorder (GAD) is a part of my BP1, so generally flares when the mood symptoms flare. it is rare for it to flare when there aren't abnormal moods present.

you seem manic to me from your fast stream of thought writing. that could be a source of anxiety. if this is the case, then paxil is the last thing you want.

increase zyprexa and increase your antianxiety agent. maybe add much more klonopin. you should look at around 2-3mg a day at least to deal with what you're dealing with by the sounds of it. i'm not a pdoc and my "medical advice" isn't gold or something. i'm just another nutjob who's been in and out of the nut house and has been on more meds than god knows about.

nothing ever stomped the cra* out of my unruly moods like Z did, and nothing has gotten rid of my anxiety like klonopin does. those two are wonder drugs. i'm not taking Z anymore because it gave me bad side effects, but it was the love relationship of a lifetime. it was my favorite drug ever. lamictal is #2, paxil #3. speaking of anti-manic agents, Risperdal is what i'm using now and it seems to be beating the shite out of my manic tendencies. i'm more prone to mania than depression.

i don't know if your mood stabilizers are working. you seemed hyped-up. maybe more Z will help out with that, or maybe another mood stabilizer or the addition of another mood stabilizer. maybe you aren't hyped up and i'm just reading you wrong. it just seems that way to me from your posts that you're a bit manic and your meds aren't holding. you seem to be having some symptoms.
