Great forum BTW and this is my 1st contribution.
Been on Cit for 5 weeks now (a week on 10mg, followed by around four weeks on 20mg). I had been suffering bad anxiety/stress issues for a while, which led me into a depressive episode.
It's been a rollercoaster so far, with spells of good and bad days. During weeks 3 and now week 5, I've had bad increased anxiety, often randomly/spontaneous but sometimes triggered by intrusive thoughts. This can be so intense that my limbs, skin almost feel like they are burning. I also has hellish insomnia in weeks 1-3, which has mercifully abated, although I did use Zopiclone intermittently to help me through this phase.
They are serious meds, these SSRIs, and I'm hoping that the light at the end of the tunnel is coming for me. Would love to exchange advice and experiences with my fellow Citalopramers!
