Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I believe that I can help you.
You are on a moderate dose of citalopram. Your physician started you off slowly and now has you on 20 mg. per day. Maximum "safe" dose is 40 mg. per day.
Citalopram (and other antidepressants) can produce a myriad of side effects which are listed on many sites. Among these known side effects are dizziness (2% reported) and anxiety (4%) which can include panic attacks.
I have indicated that citalopram is linked to dizziness, anxiety, and panic attacks - exactly answering your question.
This is a permanent record and your quick negative response will be available to all who view this in future. Perhaps you would like to amend your rating, and perhaps you rated it by mistake.
I shall save and exit this chat and leave you to ponder this. I have given you an excellent response to our question.
