I have been suffering from mild anxiety and had a few panic attacks, my doctor prescribed me Citalopram last week: day 1 of taking them, I had the worst panic attack ive ever had for no reason at all, it then continued to come in waves for hours at a time, day 2 was even worse, I felt so anxious I didn't want to leave the house, day 3 I felt like I was going to die, the anxiety was so bad I couldnt cope, even making breakfast left me having a panic attack. I rang the doctor and he said that the tablets may cause a little more anxiety for the first few weeks but if I couldn't live with it then stop taking them. I have been off them for 4 days and still feel as anxious as I did when I was on them, is there a way back to how I felt before? I would rather live with the mild anxiety than feel afraid to leave my house.
