I’m on 10 mg of Citalopram and I’ve been on it for 3 1/2 weeks for severe anxiety and panic disorder. The first two weeks were specially difficult, but I’ve definitely notice moments lasting hours/ half days feeling good. However, sometimes I’ll get periods of feeling awful again, some side effects again (spaced out, anxiety, tingly). Not as extreme as the first 2 weeks but definitely there. I have a major phobia of taking medication, so this was a big push for me to take these but I was desperate. Both my sister and mum have had success with Citalopram for depression mostly, my sister anxiety too. My doctors told me to stick to the 10mg for now and see how it goes. Is it normal to still be very up and down even heading towards my 4th week? When I feel bad, I’d say I feel worse than I did going onto it, or maybe not worse but a different kind of anxiety (like an unfamiliar one). I get very scared of hallucinating, that’s my biggest fear but I would have thought it’s mostly only on high doses and very rare?
