Feeling anxious again, is it just a blip?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi everyone, I went to the gp with severe anxiety and I've been on citalopram 10mg for 4 weeks then it was increased to 20mg for 6 weeks and now on my third week of an increase to 30mg. I've been feeling much better but yesterday morning and this morning I've been feeling anxious and sick again. Not as bad as before but it's just frustrating and I'm just wondering if I'll ever feel normal again or its just a blip? Thank you.

    Hi Emma it's  just the increase that is the causeof  the problem.give it a few more weeks and it will all settle  down again. You have responded well to the meds before and you will again.xx

    I'm in the same boat as you but talking to other people on SSRI's I realized that you will always remain with your capacity to worry. Apparently there won't be excessive worrying but a "normal" person's worry will still be there.

    Hope it works for you.

    Thank you for your replies, anxious again today but I do realise now from reading other discussions that it is still early days. X
