My mom is on citalopram, 10mg per day since 8 weeks. No effect whatsoever, except this one time on week 6: she woke up and had imagined things (thought she been to the store but in reality she had not left the house) for the rest of the day she felt a lot of joy, almost unnaturally much and in the afternoon she got really tired.
The next day she was back being depressed and there has been no change in the two weeks since.
I do not know what to make of this?
At first I thought it was a reaction of the brain adjusting to the medicine.
I now consider two things:
1. Change to something else that may work, from an SSRI to a SDRI type drug instead.
2. Increase the dosage, could it be that this one time of joy at least means that the type of drug is the right one, we just need to get the dosage right.
Thanks for any advice, comments or suggestions.
