I started citalopram 5 days ago for GAD and my anxiety has got worse I have been getting very bad sweats too and tingling in my hands Just wanted to know how long these side effects will last and how long before it starts working I take 20mg in the morning Have also been given Lanzoprasole because acid reflux could be causing lump in throat feeling as anxiety causes your stomach to produce excessive acid so hopefully between the two it does the trick and I don't have to wait too long for my anxiety to get better and get back to normality
