    Hey Don, I think almost definitely it is your anxiety or depression. I have always enjoyed mine, but have spent the most part of a year dreading almost every day. A great lack of enthusiasm for much has plagued me throughout and I am hoping that with time things will feel more manageable. I wouldn't consider any big change right now if you can avoid it. I personally havent had the energy or inclination. Hope when the meds work it will all look a bit brighter. Good luck.Lee

      Don I started on 5 mg in June 2015 because I was terrifies. Went upto 10mg for 5 months until December. I was supposed to incease fro 10 -20 mg from the start, but I thought I was happy enough on 10mg. When I had my review with the dr at the end of last year he thought I would do a lot better on 20 mg. I have been on 20 mg for 10 weeks. This is the second time I have taken Cit, as I was on it for a year about 5 years ago and I felt much better. This time it seems to be taking longer, and although I the bad side effects have settled I still have not reached the place I am hoping to get to. I still have days when I could happily not go to work and lie around instead, but I push on like everyone else and look forward to feeling well again. Lee.

      Starting week 11 soon, and am going to stop counting weeks and if I can. My anxiety is slightly better, but still flairs up,  but i am not planning on going up in dose any time soon. Sticking with the 20mg even if it takes longer.. Cheers, Lee.
