OK so I was prescribed Citalopram and Proponolol about 2 years ago for Anxiety. It came out of no where! One day I'm ok next day im in hospital having what I thought at the time was a heart attack (I'm only 37).
Anyway 2 years later and I decided to share my story, I've been up and I've been down with these pills.
Overall I would say for me they make me feel worse but that said they did help me get to a point where I could then take over and control my anxiety myself without the pills.
Now here is where the problems started..
First I tried cold turkey.. BIG MISTAKE. About 3-5 days later I was having Brain Zaps.. OMG haha weirdest sensation ever, hard to explain but anyone who has had them will tell you they are freaky.
So anyway I couldnt bear it no more and took a citalopram and within a few hours the zaps disapeared.
Long story short cold turkey doesnt for me work. I also tried dropping from 20mg to 10mg which kinda was ok for a few days but I slowly noticed I was getting paranoid alot about my heart beat lol.
Then I decided to give the pills another chance and so I took 20mg again but weirdest thing ever.. I suddenly realised the citalopram was now making me more anxious than when I stay off them, they was now my biggest issue and getting off them was my new mission.
