    Hello Michelle, Put taking these diet pills down to experience, if it was a magic pill we would all be taking them. As for the Citalopram this can cause anxiety to increase to start with. I started on 20mg but the side effects were too much so decreased with Drs permission to 10mg. It takes the body at least 4-6 weeks to stabilise before you get the full effects. Give it more time. I hope your Thyroid test comes back negative. Keep strong and try not to worry. 

    Best wishes.
