Hi, first post. i'll try to keep it brief but will almost certainly fail
I've been on citalopram for many years but over the last few years have been on and off taking it. something i now know was very stupid to do.
I started back on 10mg 10 weeks ago and upped to 20mg 5 weeks ago after confessing to my doctor.
My mood has stabilised and improved but a few months ago i started having problems concentrating on enjoying films and tv. I've had the anxiety head chatter for years but now it's stopping me from enjoying what i want to watch. Earlier in the week i felt i was finally getting back to "normal" and being able to get past my thoughts and watch and enjoy films/TV again but now i've had a few days of feeling down again not being totally focused on what i'm trying to watch
Is this normal with the medication? i can't remember from the last time i started taking it. i'm already wondering if i'll need to get to 30mg, is it too early to tell? does it sound like it will eventually work given i've had some good days?
I know to some it's just "it's only films" but i watch a lot of films as i don't leave the house, it's my main enjoyment in life and it's really starting to get me down.
Thanks for any advice.
