      Yeah I've been taking them since Friday and only had my morning tablet and by mid day I felt so dizzy and looked pale to the point where I felt the need to go to a pharmacy and ask if it was normal. I still feel tired now and spaced out. I don't think I'm going to take anymore until I see my doctor again in three weeks time. He's put me on anti depressants to help with the panic so I'll still take them.

      I felt the same way on both , of you still taking them they make you feel a bit worse for a while , if they aren't helping you you need to talk to your doctor about another medication ..

      Okay thanks so much for your help Tanya ! I think I'm going to lay of the beta blockers only take them when I need them to calm me down. And carry on with the citalopram but take them at night so it doesn't affect me at work x
