I went on Citalopram 3 years ago for extreme anxiety which led to depression also. After feeling awful for a while it seemed to work. But the last year and a half my bouts of extreme anxiety have been getting more and more frequent. They usually last around 10 days where I struggle to eat sleep and do anything. My GP has upped me to 30mg around 3 weeks ago. I felt like I started to feel better, but a week ago I spiraled again, and I'm back at my lowest point. I got it into my head that Citalopram is either not working for anxiety or making my anxiety worse (I feel like my brain is poisoned). I also have propananol which do seem to dampen the physical feelings I get - I take about 40mg of this as and when.
What is most likely?
Citalopram not working?
Citalopram making things worse (seretonin syndrome?)?
Mix of Citalopram and Propananol making things worse?
I haven't given the jump from 20 to 30mg of Citalopram enough time to work?
It's so hard to know what is doing what 😦
