Firstly I was prescribed 10mg, I was suffering from panic attacks and anxiety. I had 2-3 panic attacks within a week or so and I will say, when you experience a panic attack, nobody knows what it is like, unless you have experienced one. My GP upped my dose to 20mg and I have to say fingers crossed I've not had an attack for almost 2 weeks. I take my citalopram usually between 9 and 12 in the morning and I find this helps me sleep at night. Sleeping was always an issue, I tried listening to some hypnotherapy for sleep online, it really does help if you get a quiet moment.
Hi skating 1, Yes, I also have had panic attacks, and I am on 20mgs of
citalopram, and clonazapem for many years. Not another panic attack.
At one point, a differant Doc Upped my dosage of citalopram to 40mgs,
and I felt like a zombie. I tapered back down, and feel pretty good-
most days. Hope you do to.
