... never taken anything for it. I am 27 years old now and my anxiety is getting worse and worse. I have been experiencing horrible panic attacks and am at the point where I need something. I was prescribed Celexa and still haven't taken it because I am scared of the side effects. The dosage is 10mg. I guess my question is what is everyone experience with it and should I just suck it up and try it? I was wondering about talking to my doctor about xanax for my severe panic attacks. I haven't ever taken xanax either. Its getting to the point where it is really effecting my life. I need advice and thank you in advance
Celexa is used off label for a spectrum of anxiety conditions. You may or may not experience side effects but if you do those should go away or lessen in a couple of weeks. If you have side effects I hope they will not scare you away from something that may help. It can take 4-6 weeks for you to notice a difference. If it works it is a good first time med.
Xanax can be a tricky med. It can be slow to start acting and can create dependency. But may help you get through your start up with Celexa. Benzos which is what xanax is, are best used short term or only as needed. I tried Celexa but it did not work for me. That does not mean it won't work for you. We all have different chemistry. I read many good reviews about it.
You will not know if it works until you try it. You can always post here for support. There are many educated caring people on this site. My thoughts are with you.
