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!!

Is the medication helping at all?


Hard to tell yet, I feel very spaced out and it definitely gets worse in the evenings 😖I've been told it can take 2-6 weeks before they have an effect


That's a long time, you will be OK just hang in there.
