anxiety from recreational drugs...how to fix... help:(

Anyone ever had anxiety/panic attacks brought on by recreational drug use such as marijuana, ecstasy or cocaine and then went on SSRI or anti-anxiety medication to fix the anxiety/panic?

If so, how long did you have to take the medication and what medication did you take?  Are you completely free of medication and anxiety/panic today?

hiya i blame a stupid night of taking extacy for my health anxiety if only i could turn back time!!! the night i did it i was sick and i swore it was blood which resulted in a mega panic attack, the day after i actually went to check my sick and of course in a sane frame of mind remembered i`d drunk loads of cola so obviously my sick was gonna be dark lol, i also dabbled with LSD and had a few bad trips which didn help, anyway that was many moons ago and now im so paranoid when i go out that someone will spike me which also brings on anxiety.
i dont like takin meds but they have helped many people, i do take propanalol (beta-blockers) and have therapy which is a great help maybe you should mention some therapy to your doctor?
good luck, jo

i don wanna scare u but i have had it on and off for 14 yrs, although i have never had therapy before so im hoping i can knock it on the head once and for all, i have a major obsession with my heart im paranoid of having a heart attack, the only symptoms i get are heart related, and the odd panic attack

the major reason i have panic attacks, depressiona and agoraphobia is due to recreational drug use.
lsd, exstasy, meth, you name it i did it, oh and weed on a daily basis.
one day i guess i found my limit.
started having panic attacks, had to quit everything, thought i was going through withdrawel, it turned out was anxiety and agoraphobia, i was getting back to normal again using prozac and klonopin. im pregnant now so off my meds but will be bac on them in about a month! good luck if you have any questions let me know, this all started for me about 10 years ago now.
