Posted , 5 users are following.

I've been On 10mg cit for 3 weeks and it's done nothing my anxiety is still sky high I've been told to increase to 20mg but so scared of sideeffects as I'm already finding it difficult to cope I was wondering if anyone could tell me there experience and is it as bad as I'm imagining?

    I have been on cit for 6 weeks now & just starting to feel less anxious & panicky. They did put me up to 20mg but i felt much worse so Dr put me back down to 10mg. Hang in there things will get better im sure .

    I was on 10mg for nearly 3 weeks and was still feeling very rough with lots of side effects.  Upped my dose to 20mg and started feeling better at the same time, I think this was pure coincedence.  I was fine for a week/10 days and then had 5 days of feeling REALLY rough again and I've been feeling good for a week now and I'm thinking/hoping that this is it.   People say stick with it and it's REALLY hard to feel that it will work when you'd be quite happily hit by a bus.  All I can say is that for me (and for the majority of people it seems) sometime between 3 to 4 weeks it starts to get better but can take longer.  As other people have said, probably hang in there and try and just think you are one day closer.  At the moment you'll just be thinking all the time about how you're feeling.  One day you'll notice that you're not doing that so much and then in a few days you'll not be really thinking about how you feel at all as you're a lot better.
