Customer Question
I am bi-polar and on...
I am bi-polar and on a variety of medications. Yesterday I went in for my hep a and b booster shots but the nurse talked me into getting the dpt, mmr, pneumococcsl, tetanus shots as well. I had not consulted a Dr first. I had a very bad reaction to the vaccine the night after I received them. I felt almost out of body, I was dizzy, very emotional, couldn't stop crying and had a severe panic attack. Could these vaccines have interacted with any of my medications?
Carbamazapine, Seroquel, Dexedrine, clonazepam, cypralex?
I would like to know if this was an extreme side effect of having all of the vaccines at once.

Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
have you had crying episodes and severe panic attacks before like this
usually several vaccines together would not cause worse anxiety and panic attacks, but not every patient is the same.
usually several vaccines would not interact with the medications you are taking.
if you were worried about a possible interaction, this could have lead to increased anxiety and the panic attack.
usually vaccines will cause more commonly mild low grade fever, aches in the area of vaccination, sometimes a mild rash that responds to tylenol as usual side effects.
how is your anxiety and panic symptoms today? are they better?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
