Can the drug Diamox used to treat Puesdotumor Cerbri cause panic or anxiety attacks ?

Can the drug Diamox used to treat Puesdotumor Cerbri cause panic or anxiety attacks? I have been taking Diamox to treat elevated intercranial pressure for 6 months and the panic attacks just started and I have never had one before now. Can it be from the medication. I am an otherwise healthy person, I am 26 and a female.
