A 30-year-old male asked:

does anxiety cause dizzyness or a rocking type feeling or could it be the celexa (citalopram) been on it for a year and half?

SSRI side effects: I like to use www.Drugs.Com (no, this isn't a paid endorsement) to search for drug info like side effects & drug-drug interactions. Dizziness is a common side effect of many/most medications. Rash & nausea, too. But your rocking sensation may be akisthisia. Check out http://www.Drugs.Com/celexa.Html then go see your prescribing doc & report your concerns. You may need dose adjustment or change rx.

Anxiety: Anxiety can cause dizziness, probably unlikely caused by Celexa (citalopram) if you have not had the symptoms before. Consult with your doctor to rule out medication reaction and then ask for a referral to a clinical psychologist who treats anxeity difficulties regularly. Best wishes.

Celexa (citalopram): More likely the anxiety, since u have been on Celexa (citalopram) for a while & I am assuming your symptoms started recently, unless the Celexa (citalopram) dosage was adjusted recently. Consult your doctor.

ANXIETY: Anxiety can cause these symptoms. Please have a physical exam by a Dr. to rule out a physical illness. There is extra anxiety due to covid 19- stay safe, cautious & hold on to hopefulness. Please consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy to help your anxiety with Zoom sessions. Psychotherapy can help you find better coping mechanisms. Medication prescribed by a Psychiatrist can help.

Are there any herbal supplements that help reduce the vertigo symptoms?

Vertigo symptoms: Before you start supplementing make sure that you have been properly and completely evaluated by a neurologist of the condition. An often missed condition for vertigo is called superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome that is easily diagnosed with a ct scan and testing. This is treatable and vertigo can become worse if missed. A well trained neurologist or ENT physician will help wit this.

Yes: Anxiety can be caused from the release of adrenaline secondary to hypoglycemia. When sugar and artificial sweeteners are removed and small protein snacks are eaten every 2 hours and only protein is eaten at breakfast, many cases of anxiety resolve.

Inderal (propranolol): 20 mg. Is a low dose. Not sure how many times a day it is prescribed, but as long as you had no problems with your blood pressure, skipping one dose should be ok. Inform your doctor if any symptoms occur.
