I went to a walk in clinic asking for for Ativan - as this is all I know from my mom taking this. Dr. shook his head No and started writing out prescription for 10mg for 7 days then 20mg (Citalopram). I have been experiencing self doubt (I am a performer) with a vicious circle of voices and panic. I am about to embark on a beautiful massive project in a month from now. I have completed my 1 week 10mg step and am on day 2 of 20mg. These last couple of days, I feel worse and have dry mouth. Am trying to meditate and breathe deeply, but that hasn't helped. Will this feeling go away soon ?
