I've been on citalopram since February 2016, I started on 10mg then went straight up to 20mg, I'm not sure what side affects I experienced (if any) because I already felt so rubbish. I am on the medication for anxiety.
After a month i felt like I was back to my old self again & things were absolutely amazing!!!
Then unfourently on the 23/4/17 I came crashing back down. Out of nowhere I started feeling anxious again. On edge, panicky, sick, irrational thoughts. Although not as bad as before I was ever on the citalopram but still enough to affect your day to day life
Doctor prescribed me an extra 10mg & has told me to start taking 30mg daily.. which I started today on 9/5/17 .. I have felt tired all day, yawning and got abit of a niggly headache. My question is.... how long is this new dosage going to take to kick in? Because I've already been on the medication quite a while, will it kick in quicker as it's already in my system? Or am I likely to be waiting up to 4 weeks to see any difference?! I am at my wits end. I have every hope that I will feel better again as the medication has worked brilliantly up until last month. So with the upped dosage I am hoping to have the same amazing results..
