Hi, I've been on these since January now. I am defiantly a lot better than I was . I have better days than others, but being on them 6 months I still don't feel 100%. Is this normal?? I'd say I've been on 40 mg for about 2-3 months??? So I'm thinking to give them another 2 or 3 months and then try decreasing to 30 mg? Because Maybe the dose I'm taking could be too high? I just don't know. Advice would be much appreciated x x x

    I also have recently started taking he contraceptive pill and I am so exhausted and really down. Could this be because of The pills or just me??

    I think we all need better help with depression! Not just medication! I've tried many antidepressants and there's not one that has truly helped.

    I suppose it depends on outside stressors too. If you're having a bad time in life with family and partners it's worse!

    Also death of a parent and my mum being in Aged care doesn't help either.

    You lose friends and rely on doctors for support. I know that my doctor is good but he can't be there for me 24/7. I've had awful times on Citalopram.

    Coming off now and feelings of suicide.

    Waiting until I am able to take another antidepressant seems like forever.

    God bless you all. May they find a cure soon 💕

    Advice from all on here is mixed. Some have success on Citalopram and some don't!

    I did not. May I suggest you a look into TMS? We can't get it here in Australia but I believe the US is proving it to be highly successful. Good luck 😉
