    Hi Wendy. 

    Im only on 4 weeks and have good and bad days so I can't answer for you. However, from reading other posts on the 'anyone not had any side effects' forum, I think it's fairly common. We are all different and some people get there quicker than others. One thing I have noticed is that people disappear off of the forums as, presumably, they've got better.  Some people however have stuck around to help us newbies which is fantastic!  

    What dose of cit are you on? I'm on 20. It may be that you might need a slight increase. That's fairly common too.

    just remember one thing.... we are going to get better!!!  X

      Hi Debbie thank you for your reply, I think it is normal, I'm on 20mg also and have only been on this dose for about 7 weeks (was on 10mg before that) I think I will give the 20mg longer though as I think In Time it will sort itself out,

      It is good that people stick around and help us, as most of the time we just need reassurance

      Hope you are well

      Wendy xx

    Citalopram will have times when you will have side affects or what seems to be a fall back in your condition. I take the drug for about ten years and I seem to function very well. Give the drug time to work, eventually with patience all should work out for you
