I have suffered from anxiety/panic attacks for about 15 years now. I have been on citalopram for roughly 13 years (10 or 20mg). I've had my ups and downs. In August my anxiety was really bad and since then it has been a roller coaster 5 weeks ago I was still edgy and have become extremely sensitive to noise so for the first time ever I went up to 30mg. 1st week was strange and the 10 days after that were ok but since I have felt very anxious and had a bad panic attack last Saturday. For the last month I have felt shaky, thirsty, anxious, sooo tired, sweating at night, feeling like I was to scream so frustrated I feel to have this, blurry vision... I spoke to my pharmacist this morning who tested me for diabetes which it's not and thinks that 30mg might be too much and that I should go down to 25mg. What do you think? I didn't managed to get to see a GP today but I think I'll go down on them. Luckily this time I can still eat as when it gets very bad I just can't eat and lose weight quickly and can't stand any noise, bright lights...
I have to say that I'm starting to feel anxious as well as we are going away to the states on Boxing Day and I hate flying and im so so desperate to feel better!! ATM I just feel numb but kind of tearful in the last 2 days.
Anyone feeling like this? Experiencing the same? I find it harder and harder to cope with. I just wanna be happy.
Any suggestions or tips?
Many thanks x
