Hi, unfortunately this is the way SSRI's work. Because you are on a low dose you shouldn't suffer the usual 4-6 week induction effects of taking higher doses for depression. My parents both take low doses for anxiety and they both settled within a couple of weeks. I take Citalopram also, at a higher dose, and it took me about 4 weeks to settle. Of course everyone is different, but this medication is very good and could be very helpful for your anxiety. If you can, try to stick with it for a bit longer... you can take OTC treatments in the mean time
