I take citalopram on a daily and the last couple of months have been rough and since Saturday I have been having a hard time with anxiety counselor says I got depressed betond my medicine and I just have to wait until I calm down and I will be OK? Anyone else ever dealt with this

      I went to the Dr and she put me on buspar and xanax I still feel nervous but my thoughts have slowed down and the bad thoughts make me upset and anxious but I am able to distract myself pretty quickly I'm not eating either and I know that doesn't help at all. The xanax is only until the bispar kicks in. In February I missed my celexa for like 3 days and felt this way but I have been taking my medicine religiously... Should this be happening ?

      Yes possible even with regular medicines.So I what I am understanding is you were on citalopram and two months back as you were not feeling well a switch over to buspirone was made with xanax cover.Xanax is good option for immediate relief till primary drug starts working.And you are posting in bipolar forum.Is that the diagnosis u received?

      Shouldn't I be anxiety free or sm I being to hard on myself as I have been told I do during a crisis like this. I went thru this in february when I missed my celexa for three days.

      well than u should wait and try some thing like relaxation excercise.Xanax level get settlled around 3 to 4 days.Adding propranolol for few days will also help.

    Try the IAPT (improving access to psychological therapies) website - there are some great self help links.  I can't put the link in here, or it will be blocked until the link has cleared.  You should find a link to it through this website in the search engine.
