Ok heres the problem as quick as I can explain.
I never took drugs I started having anxiety attacks 10 years ago and I was on a few meds but they made me lifeless and I stopped taking them altogether and just dealt with the anxiety. I have been diagnosed with Adult ADD and I am 44 years old happily married and own a business
This past april I was playing Basketball and ruptured a disk in my back and a piece went into my nerve. The gave me percocet for the pain I was in.
If anyone here knew me I am mean, I can't finish things, I curse a lot and I have trouble focusing always going from one thing to another and never sleep over 4 hours and have at elast one panic attack a day.
After a month or so the pain in my back decreased I started to slowly walk again. But as I healed and started going back to work and out of the house My wife, Mother, Workers all started noticing that I no longer cursed and things that used to upset me now I just let go and dealt with them without the yelling. All my panic attacks went away. Normally I would have at least one panic attack a day
After a few months I was off Percocet and the anger returned and the Panic attacks came back with vengence . But whenever I took a percocet everything was great and I could focus again. As an example I have a retail store and a Big internet company. We get about
400 emails a day normally I can answer 10 at a time and just move to something else but on percocet a 2.5 mil tab (I cut a 5 in half) I answered in one sitting 240 emails. The following week I did the same thing.
I got so excited that I saw a Psych hoping to finally cure what I had because I finally saw how normal people lived and not only myself but my family and friends like me as well.
I am on Straterra but nothing worked like Percocet and no Dr will perscribe them for me I am signing up for one of those Buy your Pills overseas I did not have a Percocet for almost a week I am not withdrawing and I only took 1 5mg pill a day (Cut in 1/2 took 2.5 and then 2 hours later the other 1/2) I only took them when I really had to concentrate on work or I was going out with my family or any situation that I thought could bring on an attack Like stress at work on shipping day.
I don't drink and until I hurt my back I never even took a asprin (My anxiety attacks happened a lot whenever I had to take meds I always thought I was having an allegic reaction and I could not breath)
So Now what do I do? My Panic attacks are back big time I even tried Vicodin but that does not do anything for me. I tore my ACL in my knee and am going for surgury next week and my Dr only percribes me Vicodin which I dont take. I can deal with the pain
