The one very important thing about taking thyroid meds is consistency.  Stopping and starting and only taking meds once a week is a prescription for misery.  You need to see your doctor again, have your free T3, free T4 and TSH tests run, and determine if you need thyroid meds, and if so, how much,  Until you have that done, we would only be guessing if your lack of medication was causing your panic attacks.
