I have suffered with anxiety and panic attacks for so long. I remember being this way back when I was in my 20's.. I have tried so many pills over my lifetime. For some reason any antidepressants they put me on make me nuts!!! I have tried so many. I have PVC'S of my heart, when I take them, I feel like I am speeding, then I feel sad, then I feel tired.. Then the worse thing is not sleeping.. I can't tell you the last time I slept thru a night. So they put me on Cymbalta, took me off Celexa.. which they had me a low dose, 10mg, cause if I took any higher dosage, I would go nuts! So I started 2 days ago, on 20 mg. I took it in the morning.. same deal, I feel anxious, wired, then I get so tired, yawn about 1000 times... and up ALL NITE.! They gave me xanax to help me thru the day if needed and to definitely take it at nite, took that (which usually helps me sleep) and I was still up.. I am about to give up on this med too.. I am not depressed as much as the anxiety/panic attacks.. I am taking so many other pills too. I just wish I could be off them all...

Hi JoJo,

I gave your thread a title, as you will get more responses that way. If you would like to change it, just click on edit and do so...

I am sorry the stimulant part of your meds makes you anxious. That is what I am getting from the post anyway. I don't understand pvc of the heart. It sounds like you go up and then crash. I am sorry about that. I would definately talk to the doc about this.

I hope that you feel better,

Hugs, Karen
