Hi everyone I've been searching through these forums looking for some sort of help and reassurance.
About 3 years ago I had a really bad panic attack ended up in hospital etc then couldn't seem to get passed the fear of it happening again. I ended up on citaloprim 20mg that eventually helped me to get passed it. I've since had two children one is 2 the other is 6 months. I was on and off the citaloprim between pregnancy and was able to maintain on just half a tablet 10mg. The last two weeks out of the blue this panic has returned worse then ever I constantly feel like I'm struggling to get a deep breath in which is really scary as I feel I can't breath then I get all tense and hot and just feel miserable. I started up the citaloprim 5 days ago 10mg for a week then upping it to 20mg after that. My symptoms seem so much worse I have a constant knot in my stomach every morning I wake up with the worst feeling I don't want to deal with the day I just feel miserable and the panic is really bad I feel like I'm just holding it together. I know things can get worse before they get better but I don't remember it being this bad last time I started it. I'm wondering if anyone knows how long until things will start to calm down? I know they take 6-8 weeks to see full affect but just wanting these symptoms to subside. And will they get worse when I go up to the 20mg?
Sorry about the story I really hope there's someone out there who can help me.
Thank you for reading 😊
