I’m on day 5 of restarting 10mg of citalopram after 6 months off. Was on it for 4 years and it worked well for my GAD and health anxiety but after I stopped my IBS came back and I slowly relapsed into depression and anxiety. The anxiety has gotten 100x worse since starting and I’m having lots of physical effects and negative thoughts. I don’t remember it being this bad last time. Foolishly went on google and read all about how lots of people with GAD don’t respond to treatment and now keep thinking all these ‘what ifs’. How long until the anxiety starts to go away and does it mean that the medication won’t work this time?
