Hi I'm looking for some advice.
I've been taking 20mg of citalopram for coming up to 7 years in Easter time. I started at 10mg after suffering a break down and bad anxiety and panic attacks.
In the last few months I've been dealing with the break up of my long term (6 year) relationship which has of course caused me to feel down and unhappy, however in the last few weeks I've found out my ex is now with someone new. This has triggered off my anxiety massively, I have that constant knot in my stomach, the sinking feeling when I wake up of a morning, struggling to finish a full meal and generally just feeling really negative.
I've been contemplating going back to the doctors for a chat, I'm not sure if this is something I should just try and ride out or act on it before it triggers another horrible breakdown.. also wondering wether because I've been taking my meds for so many years now maybe they're not having the effect they should any longer?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
