I have been dealing with anxiety my entire life and after my Dad passed 4 years ago I developed a panic disorder. I went through a super hard time after that and somehow managed to pull myself out of it when I found out I was pregnant. Fast forward to about 2 weeks ago and all of a sudden all my symptoms started coming back... Chest pain, dizziness, anxiety, panic, inability to be alone, etc. I can't be acting like this now with an almost 3 year old to take care of so I saw my Dr yesterday and he started me on Citalopram(Celexa) 20 mg and also gave me hydroxyzine to take as needed for anxiety/panic. I took my first does of Citalopram last night before bed and I slept for abkut 3/4 hours before being jolted awake by my chest feeling super cold/tingly and then a racing heartbeat and then the cold/tingly feeling spread to my hands/feet. I somehow managed to get back to sleep only for a little bit and all day today I've been beyond exhausted, on and off dizzy, had to take a nap which I absolutely never do and just generally feel completely awful. My skin feels numb/tingly,blurry vision. My calves are sore for some reason too. I feel super high/out of it. Is this normal for Citalopram? I can't stand feeling like this and am terrified to take another dose tonight. I just want to feel better and be able to sleep.
