    Hi Jess

    I know your pain I have been on citolpram for 6 month and I have constantly had problems on them. When I was on 40mg I felt like I was on a high all time so I went on to 30 which I would have temple headaches all the time and the give me insomnia. I think they are rubbish doing work for me if did was only for day or 2. I'm on 10mg now every other day and my doctor has give me amitriptyline 10mg to start next week. I hope you get things sorted cause the way mental health makes you feel is horrible.

    40mg is the maximum dose and it might be that 40mg is too much for you - I know lots of people struggle with this dose and they end up with constant side effects which includes anxiety. I know you've taken that for 7 months but it could be now they've settled they may be the culprit of your migraines?

    Sometimes a small adjustment in the dose might do the trick?
