Reading this forum give me a lot of reasurrence of getting through the anxiety. My story so far...just before christmas all was well and i was having a quiet afternoon while hubby took kids to the beach. Out of the blue came a panic attack and having had these before i prompty took myself to the gp to get sorted for the health concerns i knew i was worrying about. due to my history he prescribed 10mg cit so i started taking that. the cycle of restless sleeps, low appetitie and continual adrenal drive ensued. I knew that the meds would take a little while to kick in so this knowledge was my life saver getting through the long days at home with child. unfortunately i'd had enough by two weeks so went to gp and he upped the dose to 20mg and gave me another kind to take at night to enable sleep. gradually things have come right and i've had three sessions with the psychologist. i'm determined to get this figured out and learn more about myself and my responses to situations. now at 5 weeks since start of dosage i find myself anxious again and worrying lots. i'm trying to put it down to upcoming menstruation cycle and also some things coming up that are out of my comfort zone. how have people found themselves 5 weeks in? are the blips normal or should i get the dose increased? in the past i was on cit and it was very effective for me (for post baby traumas), is it because i've been on and off it over the years that it is less effective? any thoughts?
