My story begins 5 years ago, i was prescribed with 20mg of Citalopram to deal with a non anxiety or depression problem I had. the problem was over after a year but i continued taking it because the withdrawal side effects were horrible.
Finally, 3 months ago i decided to cut it off gradually. I still suffered from the withdrawal symptoms but I pushed through. After a month i was out of it and was feeling fine, normal and happy.
Until a month ago when i was caught by a severe Panic attack. at the time I didn't realized that it was a Panic attack, so I rushed myself to the hospital , there, of course, they implied that its psychosomatic.
Ever since that Panic attack I felt very anxious and depressed, felt like I'm not myself anymore.
My GP told me to go back taking Citalopram.
For the first few weeks on the Citalopram I felt so depressed and anxious, especially in the mornings all thought the day until the evenings.
Now I'm on week 4 on the pill, I feel a bit better but not like myself before that big Panic attack,
I keep on waking up in the mornings feeling anxious and depressed.
I'm afraid that I might screwed something up in my head by taking Citalopram for 5 years and than cutting off and back on again.
How can one Panic attack make me a whole different man in one day?!
I kinda hoped that the Citlopram will fully kick in by now..
I'm feeling really confused 😦
