Some people take a small amount of quetiapine (an antipsychotic). I used to, but now take small amounts of diazepam from time to time (not often enough that it stops working).

taking citalopram has reduced my anxiety/feeling of dread but not completely.

I began sertraline in October last year and haven't looked back. Changed my life, given me my confidence bck and panic attacks are more or less a thing of the past. I do get a little anxious around 'the time of the month' but other than that dramatic improvement.

I'm on citalopram, prescribed for depression but I also suffer the anxiety. No reason for it at all, just hits me sometimes, I get a knotted feeling in my stomach, feel sick, sometimes to the point I am sick, and more recently my entire body Burns as though I'm on fire sad the symptoms were worse before the citalopram and I do know that the anxiety will pass but its still awful when its happening xxx
