I've had anxiety issues and panic attacks all my life. I'm 46.
This isn't so much a direct response to Hefficide, but to everyone.
My psychiatrist prescribed me Gabapentin. It is an anti-seizure medication. Scientists noticed that Grand Mal Seizure patients brain scans are
almost 100% identical to those of anxiety sufferers. They figured, if this medication helps the Grand Mal sufferers, it might help anxiety
I am on a relatively high dose. 1800MG a day, 600mg 3 x a day.
I've gotta tell you. When I keep up on all three doses (lunch is a biotch...when at work. Had to set a alarm on my phone for noon to make sure I
take the dose), I have GOOD days. No anxiety. I can process issues like a normal person.
I've notice that when I falter.... I have sh&tty days. Like, at least A panic attack A day AT work. And fairly severe ones at that.
I'm just suggesting you talk to your Dr. about this med. I'm not saying you should take it. Everyone's brain-soup is different, you know?
