I Just want to say how much citalopram has started to improve my life.
To anyone just starting, please give this drug a chance! The first week was the worst with the side effects, but these soon passed. Week two I started to feel more positive but this was very short lived and anxiety and depression came back feeling worse than ever. It's hard to go up then down again but this is all part of the process.
I was convinced that this was doing nothing, until week 3, I've noticed a change in myself, I used to wake up with a knot in my stomach and not want to get out of bed, but now I've felt like the old me again. I go into work and smile and feel like my head had a clear out, I used to have racing thoughts but everything just feels incontrol.
It's by no means a magic pill and the depression will always be apart of who I am, but it's more of a minor thought rather than the horrbile numb dark place I used to be in.
Just wanted to share this as when I started cit I was scouring the net for positive stories as that's what will give you the strength to stick at it.
