Birth control pills causing panic attacks ?

Unread postby HealthForum » Sat Mar 26, 2011 8:04 pm

I am 28 years old and just recently started taking birth control pills. My doctor
recommended I take them because of my hormones being out of whack, as he put it. I suffer from panic anxiety disorder and have now for 10 plus years.

I haven't had a panic attack for at least 6 months or so and all of a sudden started having them again. The only thing that I can recognize as a change would be the taking of the birth control pills. The brand of pills that I am taking is Loestrin 24. Could the pills be causing the panic attacks?

Please reply, especially if you have had the same problem.
Thank you.

Panic / all-overs attacks can action anywhere and at any time, and they are acutely alarming for the victim. You could be traveling about your circadian business, activity absolutely fine, if al of a sudden you appear beyond all 'queer.' Your affection starts antagonism and pounding, you feel dizzy, faint, binding beyond your chest, and you accept a abominable activity of approaching doom.

some women do experience increased moodiness and anxiety and anxious feelings due to the pill..I feel like even though I'm on yaz I can sometimes be more emotional than I need to be lol..and I noticed i've become much more impatient and have a lower tolerance of things...coincidence? maybe, but these changes also occurred for me around the time I started the pill, I've learned to deal with it since I'm absolutely paranoid about pregnancy and that in itself would give me a panic attack haha...but, I cant imagine dealing with panic attack on a daily basis...maybe you should talk to you doctor about this and try switching to another pill..if it doesn't go away then maybe the pill isn't the best option for you

Please discontinue taking the pill and see the doctor immediately, panic attacks is a serious mental problem and can make your lifestyle change drastically like fear of driving, taking lifts, escalators, etc. |

I agree rossjulie , Run dont walk. Medication is a very dangerous game, changing your body's natural chemical make up is serious business and serious side affects are your body's way of telling you to stop, so Stop
