I was unable to control my panic attacks, and spent many days under the covers. I started taking meds. The medication stopped the mind from racing so I could find do thee underlying cause of the condition. The 20mg of celexa helps me sleep, and with good nutrition, daily excersize, and meditation I am back to reading, and crafting. After three months I am beginning to feel I have my life back. xoxo
