I first had a panic attack on new years eve last year (before I drank alcohol). Since then I have suffered a lot with anxiety and panic attacks - mainly if I'm hungover. As you could probably assume, I tend to avoid alcohol at all costs these days as I fear that I will have a panic attack. I have been on citalopram 20mg for 2 months and although they worked great at the start, I now feel helpless again and don't know whether or not I need to change the medication that I am on. I know this sounds selfish/immature/irresponsible etc, but I don't want to have to give up alcohol just because it gives me panic attacks. I want to be able to do things other people can do and not let my anxiety get the better of me.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you xx
