I have extremely bad anxiety, they tried to put me on Citalopram generic for Celexa. I said NO WAY. My father has anxiety and they put him on .25 mg of alprazolam. So my question is, could this be a genetic thing? I know that I get panic attacks where my heart is beating out of my chest at certain points and I get fidgety and nervous A LOT!!! Someone please throw out some suggestions, I know there are a TON of good ppl on here for that. I see my doctor March 8. Id honestly hate to take a daily maintenance drug, just something that would help me to get through the days when I cannot make it and freak out. I know that when my father gives me his med, I can go about my day and relax.
