I came across this site and thread today as I diligently was looking for answers as to why I am still feeling anxious, down, after being on Citalopram for 12 weeks. I had 3 good weeks and then bam out of no where I had a slight panic attack, which is rare for me, It's been years since I had one, I didn't let it scare me good thing right? However, it's been a week and few days that I can't seem to get out of this funk, low mood, anxious, worrying the Citalopram won't cure me or get me to a peace of mind. I've been reading the responses from Katecogs and did not know that it can take up to 6 months to actually heal on this med. I've had anxiety off and on for the last 20 yrs, and been on meds, but thought I was okay and went off Big Mistake! I started taking Paxil on it for 5 months and it was a nightmare with side effects, then I gained tons of weight, so Dr. switched me to Citalopram 20mg, she just increased it to 30 mg, but I am only taking 25 to ease into it. Any support you can give me would be greatly appreciated- thank you in advance
