    Totally normal it's still early days! You will go through all sorts of side effects but days get better! I'm on 20mg now since November and still have anxiety and panic sometimes! Just remember we are all here! I also use propanolol for physical symptoms!

    Good luck

    Emz!

      You will get there, it's still really early.  After about 6 weeks I felt ready to face the world again and after 4 months I felt bloody fantastic!

      Well done you! I too get more anxious at night intend to think about it and quickly stop thinking about it lol!! Life itself has good and bad days if it didn't I think those people have problems! The thing is that there's more good than bad and that's the road to recovery!! Glad your feeling better and yeah weather is awful here too!!

    Good Morning a18842!

    Sounds like you are getting there! Being on this site has prepared me for everything that could happen. I thought as I started on Cita (10mg now on 30mg) with a very heavy cold (aka Man Flu) and that it shielded me from most of the early symptoms. This may have been true, but I have had everything so far. Some not so bad, others yuk!

    At the moment I don't think I am at the point where you are yet as the "YoYo" effect as I will call it has not really hit me so bad. I still have the little downer moments which are becoming fewer and further apart, but I have not, as yet, gone even a few days without a "blip".

    So, what a great site this is! Here you are asking if these things are normal and your answer from all these loverly people becomes our answer too, to a question we hadn't asked.

    The weather may be closing in again this morn, but being here helps brighten the day!

    Best Regards and Wishes for your progress.

    David
