hi everyone I have had anxiety for many years now and I can come off meds for a couple of years but anxiety always comes back. for those of you that have just started citalopram bear with it. I can honestly say that it will get better. I start on 20mg and then up to 30mg . the side effects I had was feeling sick gritting my teeth and not sleeping very well. also the anxiety went through the roof but slowly I started to feel like the old me and the side effects passed but even now I do find myself gritting my teeth.dont expect to feel wonderful after a few days because you wont. I started to feel different around week 4 but it did take 3 months for me to feel like myself again.somedays I still feel a little anxious but it does pass and it is nowhere near as bad as it was and it does go. I felt so bad with my anxiety at the beginning but you have to push through it and keep telling yourself it will get better. I know it's hard to do that I have been there crying my eyes out thinking this is going to be how I feel all the time. but it's not I'm me again it's a long road but you will get there.
