New to anxiety!!

Hi, I've just joined this site in the hope that someone out there might understand how I'm feeling...I woke up 2 weeks ago with my very first panic attack (ever) and the anxiety has been constant since then!! I've been prescribed Citalopram 20mg and I've been taking them for just over a week...I have all the usual anxiety symptoms (dizzy, heart racing, hot spikes, overwhelming panic) and I'm trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel!! All advice welcome!!
