7 weeks on higher dose of citalopram

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi everyone

Well this my 7th week of taking a higher dose of citalopram (40mg increased from 30mg).  After a few weeks of horrible side effects, these are gradually easing although I still wake up in the morning with anxiety - this does pass though but I thought it would have gone by now!  I am also seeing a therapist on a weekly basis which helps - just wondered if anyone felt like this at 7 weeks?

Look forward to hearing from you!

    Hi Sue.

    I recently took Citalopram for 8 weeks and it didn't agree with me which is unfortunate because I took it many years ago and it worked fantastic.

    I think that time it took about 7 weeks for me to notice that I was much better than when I started and about 9 week before I felt totally normal,anxiety free xxx
