I have been on citalopram 20 mg for about five days and having obsessive thoughts cant shake them.I was just wandering if anybody out there was going through same thing and will it help
Depends on how long you have been taking it. It can take 2-4 weeks to reach a therapeutic dose. It is used off label for panic and anxiety. It has a good chance of working and is a good one to start with. You may have a slight increase in your symptoms with the start up but usually these lessen within the first couple of weeks.
Hope you start to feel better soon :)
