My 20 yr old son has been suffering from anxiety attacks....they have gotten worse over time.
He has gone to therapy and was prescribed some awful medicine called seroquel which I felt was wrong and very dangerous. Too sedating. He has also tried antidepressants which have not worked either.

His body will go from anxious to extreme fatigue. He is always tired, and always agitated. He is itchy and gets sharp stabbing pains all over his body. (and has a hair pulling issue due to the anxiety) We are at a loss for what to do.

I was reading one of your threads on fibromyalgia and anxiety and wondering if anyone thinks that Lyrica would help.

Doctors do not seem to know how to help him...but this has gotten out of control and he is unable to enjoy life and even keep a job. We do not have specialists in the area that seem to know anything about his condition.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

Oh wow , that's a hard one as it could be so many things.i went through a few years with that it was awful. But then I knew why mine started. I think the first thing to do is find out where this has come from. Is it something in his past or is it drugs his on .some meds can make u very down .some meds can really make u itchy . Can he have a antihistamine for the itchy skin.
Can u tell your Dr u wonder if it's fibro and see what they say

Hi there,
Lyrica is prescribed for muscle and nerve pain, so would likely not help with anxiety.
