    I've heard its normal, that we have to give this pill 6 to 8 weeks. I'm on my 3 rd. Week today at 10 mg and I am still fuzzy, dizzy and anxious, started on 5 mg over 8 weeks ago first, now 3 weeks on the 10 mg. I hate the feelings too. Good luck to you!

    Hi, yes I had this for weeks when I started on 20mg.  I have recently been put on 30mg and felt so bad first few days just stayed in bed.  Always worth going back to your GP if it gets too much but it should improve, my side-effects lessened eventually and Cit does lessen my anxiety. Hang in there X (I should add that my dose was increased because of very stressful life circumstances, not because the drug wasn't effective)

    Hi Polly06,

    Not so much tension, but def fuzzy, spaced head and aches and pains. I have never suffered from head aches (apart from external knocks playing rugby - which may explain a lot!!!) and I wondered if I would with Cita, but, so far, not.

    Over the past 6+ months of being a member of the forum I have read some that have and again it appears to be all a part of side effects some do get. We have all suffered from diff levels and amounts of paranoia or would it be hypochrondria? I had to have a healthy man check up to subdue quite a few of mine.

    All in all yer just one of us going through the same. Keep posting keep in touch and keep looking ahead no matter what gets thrown in your way, symptom or otherwise!

    Best Regards,
