Hi. I stopped taking Lexapro roughly six months ago and I was managing my anxiety pretty well on my own, or at least I thought that I was. I was recently confronted by my family about resuming my medication because apparently I am not as pleasant as I thought I was.

I have recently been feeling very overwhelmed. I work about 30 hours a week and am also a full time college student. I am getting ready to apply to a competitive program this spring so I have been experiencing some anxiety in my classes. Constantly worrying if I am going to get an A or spending all of my free time studying because I am fearful that I will fail.

About a two weeks ago I had a severe panic attack during the night. I awoke from sleep with my heart racing, dizzy, disoriented, sweating, blurry vision and I felt like I was going to vomit instantly.

Since this panic attack I have been feeling incredibly anxious, almost all the time. Then I started panicing thinking these were symptoms of being pregnant which only made my anxiety worse. It is very unlikely that I am indeed pregnant and the symptoms are different the only thing really similar is the nausea which is mostly only noticeable if I am in a stressful situation (i.e. work, going to the mall (I hate crowds.)) I have actually not vomited in these two weeks or with the panic attack.

Does anyone have any techniques to help manage this until my medication begins to kick back in a bit?
