Im just wondering if anyone can tell me if what I’m going through is normal at this stage. I’m on my tenth week now of taking citalopram 20mg, the first few weeks were really bad for me as the citalopram not only made my anxiety worse but it i couldn’t sleep neither. I was having panic attacks throughout the day and again in the night, it was awful, I did honestly feel like I’d never get through this and all the time the doctors wanted me to go up to 30mg. Well I’ve hung in there and with zoplicone to help me sleep I do feel like I’ve made some small progress. I’ve returned to work last week and even though I’m not finding it easy with working with some anxiety, I am managing. I’m not having panic attacks but I still struggle with my mind wandering and having anxious thoughts, it’s like I’m overcome with a feeling like something bad is going to happen and I’m scared. I just don’t know if this is still normal and if I’m expecting too much to be better by now. I know some people have said on here that it can take months but it has been two and a half for me so I just don’t know. I just want this to end, I want to be back to being me again this is so hard.
