Umm, B52 is a powerful bomb. if you are B52, you have no enemies.

Im on anti depressants, bipolar meds and also anxiety meds. I can function fine, definatley get a second opinion

I take anti depressants, and have anxiety attacks when certain triggers occur. I have not been medicated for it because the doctor fears the medication will counter the anti depressant I am taking. So, I have been forced to try and learn to moderate my reactions to anxiety. Unfortunately, results have been mixed at best. I feel for you and pray for your good health.

If the psychiatrist doesn't reognise that the panic attacks is one major problem for you then maybe it is time to shop around for another opinion. <br />

I understand that the mixed anxiety depression thing is very real issu and ofthen respond to help but that it is a much harder battle than if you just have one or the other. What has the doctor put you on re: medication?<br />
