Hi Sjb.  I have been dealing with panic attacks on and off for 20 years now.  When I become stressed they always come back with a vengeance.  I have never felt like I am "panicked out".  However, I tend to go into overload at times and become entirely numb where I lose the ability to feel anything at all.  When this happens I tend to stay this way for a month or two. 

I'm not sure if this is what you are feeling, but this is the closest I think I can relate.  I hope it helps.

Well, that's a new one. I haven't heard of anyone being "panicked out." That may be a good thing. Isn't the medication you've listed a beta blocker? Beta blockers block the release of adrenalin and so being able to panic or freak out isn't an easy thing to do while on them. That's actually what I liked about being on a beta blocker.

I would wait and see if others come on here and have experienced what you're describing. Also, get a good therapist and let us know how it's going.

Well...I've had panic/anxiety for most of my life.  But I have had periods of relative calm.  From what I have read and gotten from therapy, the extreme rush of adrenalin we get that causes most of our symptoms does have it limits. The gland can secrete just so much. Uncomfortable, scary but very rarely dangerous. Most attacks peak then slowly wane.  Maybe that's what you are feeling when you describe being 'all panicked out'.  That's what happens to me when I've had an extreme bout of attacks.

I once had a therapist tell me that when I had palpatations it was the same as someone running on a treadmill in a gym for twenty minutes and I was getting the same cardio vascular work out for nothing!
