View Full Version : Does it work?

I am not sure - I was on 3 different anti-depressants and found I felt no better. I stopped taking them and although I felt worse for a couple of weeks I did not feel they helped. What are your experiences?

I found them to be a complete and utter waste of time I felt no different wether I was taking them or not!

Hi all - I am currently on Citroplam (10mg) and have decided, together with my G.P, to gradually come off these tablets after 9 months! At the beginning I was having regular panic attacks - felt very unwell at times - it was a truly difficult time! I therefore decided to speak to my G.P about appropriate medication. I felt better after 3-4 weeks, not having as many panic attacks and WITH TIME began to gradually get my 'sparkle' back.

As I have stated, I aim to come off these tablets, and maybe that will be the real test. However, I now accept that panic attacks are something I can control, with breathing correctly. I do not fear them anymore, as I did in the beginning. I control them....... not the other way around!

I will keep you posted

I have been perscribed Cipralex which doesn't seem to help at all, i was perscribed it before i was getting married the only thing it did was give me involunatry muscle spasms so i have come off it. The only thing that does seem to work is Propananol, it still doesn't help me in social situations but for meetings etc it helps.

Hello to you all - I think you have to 'speak as you find' with medication! I was lucky I guess because my first attempt with medication (cipramil 10mg), really did help. Alongside medication, however, I believe you need to partake in therapy or counselling, to 'iron out' and highlight the real cause of your panic/anxiety! I will be attending an 'anxiety management course' on 17th June 2003, in conjunction with my tablets. I will keep you posted.

I was prescribed anti depressants at first, but had a bad reaction to them and never took them again..... I am currentley taking beta blockers (Propananol) 40mg once a day and have been for 6 months. it took about 4 weeks for the tablets to kick in and start working properley. I take the tablet first thing in the morning and it seems to help me through the day, although i do have "moments" when out and about, but nothing compared to a year ago. So i think these tablets have helped me alot.

Take care
