i went to the doctors last monday and she prescribed me citalopram 10mg for my anxiety to take one every day for one week then take two daily. i took it monday night and felt sick all of tuesday and very strange wednesday. so i had to have 2 days off work. By friday i felt the side effects had gone. On sunday i went out for a family meal at a pub i managed to sit there for 10 minutes but my anxiety got so bad i had to go and sit in the car till everyone had finished. i felt really silly that i wasted all that food and had to go and sit in the car. Today i was meant to be going to the hairdressers but cancelled it this morning as didnt want to embarrass myself and at lunch time im meant to be meeting a friend for lunch at a pub. i think its probably best that i dont rush too much at once but dont want to let my friend down and am scared of what happened on sunday. i should have started taking 2 tablets on monday but i havent as scared of the side effects and cant afford to take time off work. i think i will start taking 2 tablets on friday night then i got the weekend.
i dont think the 10mg has made me feel better at all. has it helped anyone else or did you feel better when had 2 10mg a day?
