    Hi Michelle. I'm 6 months in and I still have the odd blip now and again. When I do start feeling jittery I know what's happening so I just bat them away. Maybe that's the meds working.

      HI Paul,

      yes the meds are workings. I'm on 10mg now 11 months in. I do get a blip now an then but very mild and i put music on or meditate or just absorb myself with my work or a distraction.

      keep positive.

      Will

    Hi Michelle/i appreciate you have been on citrolopram for 1 year and second time around ,but because citrolopram is an anti depressant some times your blip might be caused by even a slight anxious moment and the ssri has too work harder and this may be why you are getting a blip.

    Hi Michelle,

    Sorry your going through this. Just focus on where you have been and how far you have come. But dont focus on your teeth episode. I too have had some small blips recently, especially today. I push myself to ignore it and distract myself with my work. I can't remember if your job is stressful...

    Mine is totally so I blame that on my blips. I also have dry mouth. I bought lousenges called smart mouth for dry mouth and they work. Do you take a benzo? I take xanax periodically to help me sleep and that makes a world of difference the next day.

    will

      I used to be in the food industry.

      never take the meds together. I'm sure you take the cit in the morning with food.

      It's work that causes this. I manage a huge IT department and I'm involved with everything cause I care and I'm knowledgeable and I actually love what I do. But the flip side is my health. Meditation and accupuncture helps me,

      just a thought!

      Have a good day ! Stay warm its 2* outside here.

      Will

      HI James, i felt my anxiety / depression start lifting after about 6 weeks, but after more than a year on it , i started tapering & have discovered with exercise & meditation i can now cope nicely on 2.5, now i have even started missing the odd with zero meds.
