I've had big progress in the last 9 weeks on citalopram, but then i get my period and I feel full of anxiety again! I know things are improving, but I need constant reassurance that it is normal for it to take this long to recover?

      There were point that anxiety was so high I couldn't sit still I never slept, I was barely eating and I hated to be home alone(not really alone just me n kids). Now I'm living my life normally just with moments or days of anxiousness here n there.

      what were your symptoms of anxiety?

      Did you try any other anti depressants before citalopram?
