Citalopram (10mg) for anxiety disorder

I've been taking citalopram 10 mg now for 4 weeks I had to cancel loads of stuff in the first week because of the side effects.. It was a hellish week indeed. Every day I had to wonder if it was normal. I'm now a bit calmer as far as panic attacks are concerned but I've still got the side effects.. Dizziness nausea headache occasional burning sensation on my skin and absolutely no appetite but ...

Paroxetine

Paroxetine (20mg) for anxiety disorder

When I was increasing my paroxetine dose I started off just feeling worse. The symptoms got worse and I was only able to keep it together with the help of oxazepam. After a week or six I started to notice the positive effects and since then I've felt more even and balanced and happier.

Sertraline

Sertraline (25mg) for anxiety disorder

I started taking Sertraline in 2010 because of social anxiety. Initially my symptoms only got worse, over the first 3 weeks. But then after 4-6 weeks, the perfect result. My symptoms have completely disappeared. Few, if any, side effects any more.

Escitalopram

Escitalopram (20mg) for anxiety disorder

after a year of health problems, the GP referred me to a psychiatrist: she determined: generalised anxiety. started by taking escitalopram: 5, 10, 15 and now 20 mg. In the meantime I have realised that I only respond properly to tablets from Sandoz and when I get a different one from the pharmacy (the insurer decides what they're prepared to pay for) I don't feel at my best. now I'm paying for ...

Citalopram (40mg) for anxiety disorder

Had 4 very tough weeks of getting used to 40 mg Citolapram. Don’t know how long I’ll be able to keep this up. Just feel nauseous all day long and it’s made my Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) worse.

Mirtazapine

Mirtazapine (15mg) for anxiety disorder

My GP put me on Mirtazapine for burnout (and additional anxiety /panic attacks). Have used it now for 5-6 weeks. It took some time to get used to. The past 3 weeks I felt super. I could take on the whole world. However yesterday I suddenly had a setback. Down and sad. Unfortunately. Hope it passes soon and will feel like last week.

Metoprolol

Metoprolol (50mg) for anxiety disorder

I got this from the GP in the post and was simply prescribed more without further investigations I am 40 and never had anything wrong with my heart but this has to be a temporary medication due to stress. Now I've got a different doctor who says stop while other doctors carry on prescribing it, purely this confusion is what has prompted me to question it My blood pressure is good and okay so my...

Mirtazapine

Mirtazapine (15mg) for anxiety disorder

Use this medicine for quality sleep, it worked better at the start. Now after a long period I notice it’s become less effective. But still even if I’m not able to fall asleep once in a while, I don’t get exhausted. I started this medication for an anxiety disorder, as long as I sleep well and not get exhausted I’m able to control my anxiety. I have been able to lead a normal live for over 5 yea...

Duloxetine (30mg) for anxiety disorder

After years of depression and fear and the use of 5 anti depressants, I lived for 5 years without medication. I preffered to be afraid and depressed to being a zombie. Then I started cymbalta. I can feel the sun again. I have my life back. I do dream a lot, but that is well worth it.

Quetiapine

Quetiapine (25mg) for anxiety disorder

This medicine is horrendous. I slept like a log after I'd taken it. The following morning it was like I was under water. My brain was slow and thoughts were all over the place. Part of my face felt numb. My front teeth had no feeling. I simply couldn't function. Laid in bed for 3 days with stabbing pains at the back of my head. Your whole head is under attack. Couldn't do anything except wait f...

pay close attention. don't take this unless you absolutely have to. Since I've been taking it I really struggle to urinate and I feel really dreamy at certain moments. Something particularly dangerous when you're driving.

Citalopram (20mg) for anxiety disorder

I've been taking citalopram for 5 and a half weeks now for my depression and anxiety. Feel a moderate effect. I'm not totally happy with citalopram because of all the side effects. It has made me more anxious that I was before, I feel estranged from the world and confused, I've got really bad distress in my life, I feel like I'm going mad and I've got a heavy feeling in my head. The drops taste...
