Our expert says:
I doubt that he's "playing you up", as there'd be no benefit for him in doing so, and anxiety attacks are unpleasant even to try to fake. WHY he has them especially towards the end of the year is harder to guess. Mood and anxiety disorders can at times be related in severity to season ofyear, but more so in Europe and North America, where the change of seasons makes for major changes in dark/light hours of the day, etc.
Cipramil is not the usual treatment for anxiety attacks, but rather for Depression. Have you asked him whether he has discussed with his psychiatrist / doctor the reason for this apparent seasonal swing in his symptoms ? Perhaps he would agree for you to see his psychiatrist / doctor to discuss what you have observed about his symptoms, and for advice on how best to help and to respond to them.
