Hi, I've been on citalopram 10mg for several years but my anxiety has been back for two months now and citalopram seems to be no longer effective. I have new anxiety brought on by family bereavement and stress. Can anyone advise on what is the best med to take before I see my GP please? I tried doubling the dose, on GP's advice but it didn't work. Has anyone had to change this med for a better one? I would be grateful for any advice.

    Remember it takes time time for the double dose to kick in, try to keep us informed a lot of advice from here, l have been there before had to double to 40mg now l am ever so happy no anxiety or sadness anymore.

      Hi Richard, thanks for replying, I didn't think it would take long to have an effect, maybe I didn't try double dose for long enough in that case

      I will see GP and keep posting. Cheers!

      Hi leri,

      That's interesting to know, I shall look that up and perhaps bring it up with GP. Many thanks.
