Hi I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for years now and was put in citaloprim which worked great. I have been off it for over 6 months now but my anxiety and panic attacks have come back with a vengeance. I'm 31 years old and have two children a 2 year old and 6 month old. I started taking the citaloprim 6 days ago starting on 10mg then going up to 20mg tomorrow. It has defiantly amplified my symptoms and also made me feel depressed. I'm scared to up my dose incase the side affects get worse. I'm struggling to get through my everyday life with my kids and feel so guilty I wake in the morning at 3am and can't get back to sleep because I have a constant feeling of nervous energy pulsing through my body. I also feel like I struggle to get deep breaths of air in and my chest gets super tight I know this is all part of the panic but it's really scary. I'm home all day alone with my kids and am so worried if something happens to me what would happen to my girls! Sorry about the story I'm just really hoping to hear from someone who has been in the same situation and has come out on top. I just don't remember the symptoms being this bad last time I started the citaloprim. Thank you for taking the time to read.
