View Full Version : Sudden adrenaline surges--anxiety or mania?

I take a small (37mgs) of Wellbutrin once a day, and Xanax small dose (.0625 mgs) twice a day, for anxiety and depersonalization. Also, Synthroid (to raise thyroid level--.150 mgs) once a day, and small dose of Nuvigil (20 mgs) to stay awake. The last few days I have had sudden, huge adrenaline surges in the middle of the day, not exactly anxiety, more like a mania, but i have never had this before. I cannot slow down long enough to feed myself--when I stand still my body shakes all over and am terrified to be in my own body!

I pace feverishly around my house, and go out and racewalk to try to wear it down but the energy is too great.

This is the exact opposite of when I wake up in the morning, which is hell--takes ~3 hours to get awake after walking aimlessly around the house. WHAT IS GOING ON?!

That sounds awful! I've had smaller versions of that and it sux! It does sort of sound like mania to me a bit but i'm no expert, you should tell your Doctor or psychiatrist that your getting these epsiodes.
