I have been on a 10mg dose of Citalopram for about 7 seven/eight years due to me suffering anxiety where I found I could not go out to family meals, go on holiday or even eat properly. At the time I though life was not worth living.
When I started the first 2 weeks I found very hard to cope as my Anxiety appeared to get worse and I felt very low, but then things began to pick up and a about a month after taking the first dose I remember feel quite at ease with life.
Now seven/eight years on my Anxiety level started to increase mainly linked to a sudden appearance of heart pulputations. I saw my GP a week ago and my citalopram dose was increase 20mg 6 days on I my Anxiety level has gone through the roof to the point where I ended up in A&E after a severe panic attack. After a series of quick tests BP, ECG and blood the A&E doctor assure me that there was nothing wrong with psychically and that may be having a normal initial reaction to the dosage increase which is good to know.
I was wondering if any else has had this type of reaction to Citalopram?
