Med Help!

I am a 21 year old female..I was diagnosed with panic disorder in high school and took all sorts of anti-anxiety meds and anti-depressants with no relief. About a year ago I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism caused by graves disease(which causes metabolic problems, mood, anxiousness, insomnia, fast heart rate), in the last few months my thyroid is in remission so I was taken off anti-thyroid medications. Within the last month or so my depression has become unbearable but im still having maniac episodes, which can range from panic attacks to irrational behavior. Two weeks ago my family doctor said I am bipolar. Since he has started me on 1000mg of depakote, propranolol (beta-blocker to control heartrate)nd I am back on Xanax. My doctor had put me on Zoloft about a month ago which made me even more anxious, so thats why he's thinking I am bipolar. Has anyone else experienced panic attacks/anxiety along with being bipolar? And if so what do you take? I have no health insurance so I go to a community clinic which I know isn't the right treatment for me but I am out of options.
