84 days on Citalopram

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've been on 20mg Citalopram for 84 days (12 weeks). I was feeling really good and was returning to work gradually doing mornings, but then I seemed to dip this Tuesday and had to take yesterday and today off work, as I didn't feel well in myself.

Has anyone gone through a similar thing and felt that they have dipped? If you have, how did you deal with it?

    This is normal.  Recovery comes in waves so you will be up and down for a little while.  Don't worry, it will eventually stop.

      I'm glad it's not just me don45258,

      I've been having good days, then Tuesday I started feeling anxious and not feeling too good in myself. Yesterday (Wednesday), I woke up jittery and again not too good in myself, I had no appetite and I stayed in bed all day.

      I didn't get up til about 2pm today (Thursday) but I feel a bit better today, so I'm hoping to be back at work tomorrow.

      I'm so much better today, thanks Don. I feel so much brighter today.

      I think it was just a dip and maybe I had to get it out of my system.

      How are you? :-)

      Hi Don, I haven't had any intrusive thoughts or anything like that. It was the feeling of not feeling right in myself and being quite emotional this week but hopefully things will get better for both of us.
