View Full Version : Panick Attack with my treatment

Hi everyone,

So i take ritaline for one year now, 60mg extended release on the morning, or 40mg if not 60 needed.
I am 22 years old and weight 55kg.

So, today I took my meds like everyday, and when it came up I felt weird, and had quite big headache... And now, 2 hours later, I've had a huge panick attack, and I'm not feeling ok at all...

I was wondering if someone has already experienced this type of effect?

I must say I'm still a bit confused, my head feels pretty loud, but I can feel that the positive effects are still here... Just afraid that those negative ones aren't normal.

Is this the first time this has happened?

Yes it was the first time I had a panic attack with my meds.

The holidays are making me pretty stressed but I would not say that i have too much anxiety, and my life is okay.

Therefore, I don't know what happened, i got better quickly after that, and my day went normally. I have an appointment with my doctor in january, I think I'll wait to see him and then I'll write what it was...

The reason I asked that is because if it wasn't typical then I suspect it could be due to other anxiety issues you have and not meds.
