Blips. All part of recovery?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all, I've been on cit now for 25 weeks. I am on 30mg and have been for 10 weeks and was 20mg previously for panic and anxiety. I have come a long way and can now function normally but I'm still getting days where I feel unrest. I have felt pretty much back to normal over the past 2 weeks but today I've been off again. Felt panicky and restless and I've done nothing to set it off. Is this normal or not? If it is how long before these blips stop? Makes it worse after feeling so much better.

    I am also on 30mg, started on 10mg at the beginning of September then 20 then 30 for the last 16 weeks so 5 months overall for anxiety and depression. I was off work for 3 months had debilitating panic attacks and also lost my swallow living on shakes and soup. My swallow has improved but I still find it uncomfortable. I have had numerous tests for this but all have been normal. I suffer with health anxiety too. My mental health is so much better but physically I still do not feel right ie muscle aches, twitching, lethargy eye floaters have also. seen a neurologist and had neck and brain mri all normal. I am sure some of this is due to the medication. These tablets do take a long time to work.

      Sorry to hear that June. It sounds like you're having a bad time of it still. I know these tablets take a long time to work so hopefully you feel better soon. I was just hoping the blips would have stopped now
