I've been on Cit. for 9 weeks now for anxiety, started on 10mg for 5 weeks & after a very rocky start it definitely started taking the edge off, then went up to 20mg for the past 4 weeks with no side effects at all & I felt it was working very well. I've also been having counselling for the duration and felt it was going great. Yesterday I visited my GP & made a plan to get back to work (I've been off since January), got my meds put on a repeat prescription & didn't need to go back to see her until June as I was doing so well, I'm also due to finish counselling next week. During the night I woke up with the beginnings of a panic attack which I managed to halt before it started with some relaxation and other techniques but today the anxiety has returned with a loss of appetite and constantly running to the toilet. I'm feeling so angry & upset as I really felt I'd worked really hard to get better, I'm also worried that I'll never get back to work! Any words of encouragement would be very much appreciated, x
