So i've been on 10 mg of cipralex for about 4 months now. I'm still getting anxious moments and panic attacks around the time I ovulate and starting about 4 days before my period until 2 days into my period. I've seen my doctor to up my dose of cipralex but she wants me to start taking vitex. A couple of nights ago at work I ended up with a FULL BLOWN panic attack. Worst one I've ever had. My husband ended up having to shove an ativan into my mouth because it was so bad. I was so scared to take it because I swore it would kill me since I've never taken it before. 45 minutes into the attack, thankfully the ativan kicked in and I went to sleep. I haven't started taking the vitex yet....I don't know why. I got a referral to a counceller, but I hated it. She talked to me like I was stupid and kept saying "and how did you feel". Argh. Anyways. Any opinions on the vitex?
