Hello everyone! It started a few weeks ago. I was watching tv one night, and I had a panic attack out of the blue. I thought nothing of it and went about the next few days. Every single night since that first night, I've had anxiety all day, and at least one panic attack at night.
I have been on 20mg of celexa for 2 years. It has been a complete lifesaver for me. As soon as this happened, I started with some lifestyle changes. I started doing cardio again, I started taking my dog for longer walks, and I have been more conscious about what I'm eating.
I couldn't get in to see my doctor when this first happened, so I went to a walk in clinic. The doctor there prescribed xanax until I could see my doctor.
I got in to see my doctor two days after that. She said sometimes celexa stops working and that I have a few choices. I can increase, switch, or continue what I'm doing and see what happens. I also had an ekg done twice because I feared something was wrong with my heart.
I don't want to increase because the side effects are unbearable, as we all know. I don't want to switch because of the side effects again. So, I've decided to continue exercising and see what happens. I've also started eating healthier and started using an app for meditation.
That was two weeks ago. Nothing seems to be working. I am still having anxiety most of the day. Then, every single night, without fail, I get at least one horrible panic attack.
I am lost and looking for some insight.
