Hello deveshvyas
Welcome to HCM

Sulpitac (amisulpiride) 200 mg per day with pacitane 20 (?) per day for two years might be a reason behind. Amisulpiride is a antipsychotic drug which is also used in depressive disorders, it's doses are 50-200 mg per day, when taken alone it may pose individual to risk of motor side effects so usually pacitane is added with amisulpiride to prevent these side effects. Some times with amisulpiride high doses there occur restlessness, fear, increased anxiety, which you are suffering.
Also as you are taking 50 microgram thyronorm, it may also increase anxiety.
- consult your doctor regarding dosing of Sulpitac and also addition of some other medicine to prevent anxiety associated.
- get your thyroid function level checked again to titration of the dose of thyronorm.

Hope I cleared your doubt.
Take care
