I have acute anxiety and I was just put on Buspirone yesterday from my doctor because I was on Citalopram(Celexa) 20mg. for three weeks and everything seemed fine, but for the past week I've been feeling like I'm not 'real' and I just worry about everything and I can't sleep. Before I even started the Citalopram I had two anxiety attacks which sent me to the ER because I never had this before in my life and I was scared because I didn't know what was happening to me. So, when the attacks happened, they would only last about 24 hours. Then, after starting on the Citalopram this not 'real' feeling and worrying hasn't gone away in a week. So, my doctor told me to stop taking it and start the Buspirone which I just started today and I'm obviously not going to feel any of the good effects from it yet, but I just wish I would have been put on the right medication first instead of going through all this trouble with the wrong medication. I apologize for ranting, but I just feel comfortable saying this to people who have and are going through the exact same thing. What I'm trying to get at is am I going to need to be on the Buspirone for the rest of my life? At this point, I don't care if I have to be, as long as I can get my life back and be normal again and stop feeling like I'm in a dream. I just want to get some answers and just people to talk to and feel better because no one I am close with understands exactly what I'm going through.
