Hello everyone, I have been in this group for around 7 months or since I started Celexa. I've always delt with anxiety since I was 16 but it was tolerable nothing horrible. I turned 31 years old and out of nowhere I was hit by frequent daily panic attacks and not being able to breathe. I have been to the emergency room thinking I was having a heart attack. Tests after test after test nothing was wrong I'm perfectly healthy they say. I went to my doctor and told him my issue and he suggested Celexa for anxiety. After about a week my panic attacks disappeared and heaven't had one since. I was started off at 20mg. After about a month on 20mg I couldn't take the side effects they were too brutal. I dropped my mg by breaking my pills in half to 10mg. Delt with withdraw symptoms for about 4 days. I kept asking myself if it's worth it, I was told keep going and push through. After about 3 months I noticed the odd random symptoms start to fade away slowly. Every now and then I have a blip where it lasts a day or two but it goes away and I can handle it. I am at 7 months and I hit that point of yes I am back to myself. I'm happy. Celexa is my miracle.
