Citalopram is my miracle.

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello everyone it's been a few weeks since I've last posted a update. Everything has come full circle and all of the brutal side effects I was struggling with are gone. Since first starting on 20mg then drpopping to 10mg ( Feeling of impending doom, Anxiousness, trouble breathing, tingling in arms and legs, numbness.) are gone. I haven't had a panic attack for a long time now. I feel normal. I feel like myself! I'm loving life! I can do things and I can breathe again! I had such a rough time the first month but wow! I'd do it all over again if I had to just so i feel the way I do now. If I have a blip of anxiousness it lasts maybe an hr or so then it's gone. Cit is an amazing medication and my miracle.. Thank you all for helping along the way! I'll continue to give updates.

      I dropped from 20 mg because I was having verry bad issues with my breathing. The side effects were wavy to harsh on me. I dropped so It wasn't near as bad. I waited it out and now I'm on the mend.
