20 mg Citalopram 12 weeks - some good days / some bad days

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have been taking 20 mg of Citalopram for 12 weeks. I can't wait to feel good every day. The ups and downs is really stressing me out. I'm constantly tired and loss my motivation. I find it hard to concentrate at work. I have a couple of good days but then I start to think about when I will feel bad again and I ruin my good moments. I feel like I'm always expecting a bad feeling to come and I'm so stressed because of this. When I have a bad day then it takes a while to snap out of it. My legs feel weak when my anxiety spikes up. My eyes get blurry at times and they feel heavy. The pressure on my head comes and goes throughout the day. I'm so tired of feeling like this.

    I feel very similar to you!!!  I've been on Cit for 46 days, but went up to 40 mg 18 days ago.  I have some really good days but then fall back to anxiety ridden days.  The roller coaster ride is so hard.  I have similar symptoms you are feeling as well.  I hope you feel better soon!!!!!!

    I have found that medication alone cannot remove anxiety, must use CBT and other types of brain games to help retrain myself from falling back on thoughts of anxiety and it's symptoms
