I have been on celexa for over 2 weeks. Dr upped my prescription to 20 mg on Thursday. I still have constant anxiety and feel like my heart is racing which always makes me think there is something wrong with my heart. When will I start to feel better?

The max dosage is 40 mg for celexa I believe. You may need a higher dosage. Give it a full month and see if you start to feel a little less anxious. Usually that’s when most anxiety medications start to kick in. If you don’t feel anything after a month, you may want to talk to your doctor about trying something different. Are you having panic attacks or is it just anxiety? If you feel like you’re having full on panic attacks then I would address this to your doctor immediately and see if he will prescribe you something more fast acting.

Last week I had a panic attack. Lately it is just anxiety that teeters on the verge of a panic attack. I have ativan, but with a job and kids I can only take it at night. I am just in a cycle that seems never ending.
