First time poster. I've been suffering from really bad anxiety for 8 years. I had it under control with citalopram and lamotrogene with klonopin used as an as-needed drug.
My doctor took me off citalopram and this was a huge mistake. I was fine at first, but I started to unravel and got to where I was taking klonopin daily. I was able to get off off this drug. I wanted citaopram back, but new doctor kept telling me no. I wound up on lithium, abilifi and seroquel xr. I don't feel like I need these meds, but I've been told to keep them up. My doctor let me have citalopram back, but I still have to take doses of other medicines.
Anyway, I'm trying to get stable and be able to live my life again. Since going back on 20 mg of citaopram Thursday, I have had heightened anxiety which has been really tough to even leave the house with it. I am having the clenching jaws, yawning and high feelings as well. Are these side effects normal and will it get better? I was in citalopram before and I remember some side effects, but the anxiety is what is almost unbearable.
