Hello all. Im a 28 year old female. Been suffering with GAD and Panic Disorder for almost 8 years. I finally decided to seek help last year since i went through hell with a divorce and a huge life change. I was put on zoloft last year and i gave it 4 months but it made things worse, i became more fearful and never wanted to go out or get off the couch. All i did was sleep. It was awful. After that o wasn't sure an ssri was the answer. Now 7 months later i am holding on by a thread and only using 2.5mg a day of diazapam sometimes 5mg if needed. But thats not actually helping me get through the anxiety and now ive become depressed. So my therapist has been asking me to reconcider trying a medication. Asked me to research and Celexa has been whats called my attention. When i started thr zoloft the first 2 weeks were HELL. I had panic attacks, stomach problems, pins and needles, felt like death. Slowly that all went away. So i am aware i might have to ride that Rollercoaster again with celexa. What i want to know is if its worth it in the long run? Some positive experiences would be lovely to read. Tips on how to start it off. How long to give it? I also had MAJOR derealization on zoloft and above all the feelings anxiety brings that feeling scares me the most. So is this something i may have to face again for a short time while the celexa takes effect? Please any advice or stories would help. Ty all so so so much.
