How long does citrolapam take to work

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi been taking citrolapam for two weeks now and I've not noticed any improvement with my anxiety disorder. I am really struggling to get a good nights sleep also. Can anyone tell me how long these meds take to start making people feel any better?

    I was on Celexa for many years and it took some time. I think to it was going through a tough stressful time that I needed to just get Through it. Stressors are so important I've learned to deal with trying to deal with. I'm not on it as of a 3 months ago after many years on it. Interactions with a seizure medication after a brain injury I had in 2012. Had to switch to fluoxetine. Prayer's sent for some relief and healing to get back your joy and rid you of your anxiety issues.

    But it may take up to 4-6 weeks. It takes time.

    Hello.  Please give it sometime.  Medications such as SSRI's can take  up to 2 weeks to start working, and longer for some others.  And can take 6-8 weeks to fully start working.  Hang in there!
