I ve been on citrilopram now for 19 days 10 mg and just wondered if coming on your periods can make your anxiety worse or is it all in my head x

    In my experience periods always did that regardless of any meds I was on.  Not being funny but it is probably all in our heads, inasmuch as its something happening in our brain with messages and so on.  If you can cope see how it is after the period?

    Hi Tammy funnily enough I'm on day 19 of the same meds and started my periods 2 days ago, and my anxiety is defo higher, like it always does when I get them, I had the side effects from the meds for the first 7days then they settled down so I know it's not the side effects, see how you are after them, I hope it settles for you xx

    It is early days yet, possibly with anxiety you may feel stressed

    Be patient with this medication, good luck

    Keep a hold
