I've been on Citalopram for 4 months now. To any newbies starting out I can guarantee the horrid side effects do dissapear eventually. Before I started taking it I was a mess. Constantly anxious, depressed, panic attacks. That horrid feeling of not being real, foggy head, really really struggling in general with anything in life. Spent most of my time walking the streets taking deep breaths to attempt to calm down. Work was bloody hard work, home was hard work, no sleep etc etc. I am on 20mg and really feel tons better than I did.
In saying that now I want to ask a question to anyone that has been on 20mg and evened out then upped the dose to 30mg. As I was so severely anxious and although I feel tons better on 20mg I still have moments or days when I feel anxious, nowhere near as bad as I did but Im still not quite there. My doctor has prescribed 30mg but I'm loath to take them as I really don't want to experience that increased anxiety and panic that I did when I first started the meds. I have a lot on in the next month and although I'm still mildly anxious I can function. I don't want to ruin this by upping my dose and finding that I am back where I started for a few weeks. Can anyone advise or tell me their stories of upping the dose when they had evening out?
