I was just diagnosed with anxiety issues and they put me on xanax for the panic attacks that I can't control and also Citalopram for the daily use to keep me mello. They say I won't feel the full effect for a couple of weeks but I can feel like it's doing something because I don't have any attacks until about an half hour before I need to take my pill.
So anyway I hope this helps, good luck.
lexapro didnt do jack for me eithet,made me feel a little hung over the next day,that was it!!!,,,garbage!
so just another question what would you reccomend for gad if the lexapro did not work. What is another good pill with few side effects? Thanks Thomas
Good to get off the Xanax.. real good. It will turn on/in you QUICK!
I take Celexa (citalopram) and I have taken Effexor XR in the past. The Effexor was best for my GAD, but I still needed Klonopin (.5 mg 2x a day) to keep the panick attacks away. BTW I quit the Effexor xr because I switched to insurance that only covers generics. I had no problem tapering off it unlike some horror stories I've heard from others. I now take the Celexa and klonopin and seem to be fine for now.
