    A success story

    I've always thought about making this post but when you feel good you don't want to think about anxiety stuff (at least i don't!) but I just wanted to let people know who are thinking of trying this it has changed my life. I used to be stuck to my bedroom due to panic attack problems but now... I'm free I never get them I actually recently went over seas, all on my own without 1 panic attack.

    The early days can be hard and feel like its making you worse but stick with it and it really does help.

    Good luck everyone.

    It's very encouraging to hear this, especially to someone like me who is just starting out with Citalopram - so thanks.

    Yes. Worked for me as well. Took about 3 months to feel any benefit. The whole nine yards of side effects during that 3 month period. After that, gradually feeling better and better. About the year mark of taking 20mg Citalopram, decided to come off them. Consulted my GP, who gave me a choice of tapering off, or, if I felt brave enough, stopping 'cold turkey'. Being an impatient sort, took the 'cold turkey' option expecting a bit of a rough ride. However, did not suffer any withdrawal symptoms. How lucky was I? Anyway, 6 months after stopping Citalopram, am feeling just fine.

    Three months is a long time! It's impressive that you managed to persist with the side effects for that long, all the while not knowing whether the medication would eventually work.
