Hi, I've only been on 10mg of Citalopram for 4 days now, day 6 I'm supposed to up it to 20mg . I am feeling very negatively about the way I look these past days. I just hate everything about my appearance. I know my boyfriend is fed up with my constant jealousy of other people's looks and says that I don't look disgusting like I think I do. I just don't know how to think positive about the way I look. Will this medicine help with any of that or am I a lost cause?

    Hi Jenneewren, low self-esteem is often a symptom of depression and often as the depression lifts your self-esteem improves.  When you feel down you just look for negatives that support your negative thoughts, when you start to feel more positive, you start to look for more positives.

    Don't hate yourself, be kind to yourself.  x
