How well can Citalopram treat GAD?

Posted May 12 2010 7:03am

I Have been having GAD for like 3 months and a doctor prescribed to me Citalopram. I have been taking 20mgs of it per day for almost 5 weeks now, and I am still having anxiety symptoms like having trouble breathing, staying focused, and concentrating. Will these symptoms go away if i continue taking these meds?
I have been having trouble beathing and constantly feel like I have to gasp and swallow air cuz i feel like there’s a lump or sumthing in the back of my throat

Were those your symptoms before you started on the citalopram? If so, maybe you need a new dosage. I take 40 mg every evening and it helps. See your doctor. Different people respond to different medications. There are many out there, so work with your physician to find the one that’s right for you. Good luck!
