I finally got tired of always having to manage my anxiety myself and went to see a psychiatrist, who diagnosed me with generalized anxiety disorder. Nothing revelatory there; I've known I have anxiety for a long time. He prescribed me Celexa, so I filled the prescription and got the generic, which is Citalopram. It's an anti-depressant - an SSRI. He said it would take away that fluttery, anxious feeling without making me feel like a foggy zombie. He also said it would take about two weeks for me to notice a difference. I took it for three days and couldn't stand it anymore. I stopped taking it on Friday. I didn't feel anxious, but I think that's only because I felt dead. I felt like I was in my own little bubble, floating through life. It made me extremely spacey. I have an amazing memory, but it absolutely killed that. It gave me an all-over dull headache. I completely lost my appetite, and I couldn't tell when I was full when I did decide to eat. I ate a meal around 1pm, didn't eat or drink anything after that, and woke up the next day completely not hungry. Maybe I just happened to be in a bad mood coinciding with taking the medication, but it seemed to make me grumpy and almost depressed. And TIRED! All I wanted to do was lay in bed and sleep. I don't go back to see my psychiatrist for another couple of weeks, and I know there are quite a few people here who have experience with anxiety. Should I take the medication again? Will it get any better if I can make it to the two week mark? Does this medication just suck for anxiety issues? Is there anything I can ask for that would be better? I'm tempted to just ask for something I can take sporadically on days my anxiety is really bad rather than take a daily medication. My boyfriend suggested taking a lower dose, but I'm already only taking 10mg a day. Maybe I can cut the pills in half and see what happens. There are a lot of days I think managing my anxiety myself sucks, but now I'm pretty sure medication sucks, too.
