I have been on 10mg citalopram for 3 weeks now and had started to see a big change in myself. I’ve been taking my tablet at 10:30 every morning. Today I forgot to take it and around 3:30 I started to feel not right. Got to the school run had a massive panic attack probably the worst one I’ve had in the whole 4 years of struggling with anxiety, it’s really scared me and knocked me back. Does anyone think this could be because I haven’t taken my tablet yet?
I'm sorry you had such a bad experience. Some people do experience discontinuation symptoms even as early as a couple hours although it's a bit unusual given you've been on a low dose for such a short period of time.
Increased anxiety is a common side effect of withdrawal so be careful about missing a dose. Perhaps you could set an alarm on your phone?
Best regards and feel better soon!
