Citalopram 10 mg for almost 3 weeks

Posted , 5 users are following.

Monday will be 3 weeks that's I've been on Citalopram 10 mg. For awhile now I been having that dreamy like feeling like derealization and its freaking me out. I'm about ready to give up. I want to feel ok again. When will this get better. I've stopped working for over a month now to try and work on myself and get better. My sleep is a little better and i don't have as much negative thoughts anymore. My anxiety is also a little better. I just don't like this dreamy feeling sad

    I've been on Celexa for 2 weeks now and my symptoms are slowly getting better with time. I still get a weary feeling about being by myself at night while my husband is at work. But I've mentioned that to my Dr and he said in time all these effects should go away. Just got to give it time. I am a very worry some person as it is. Since being put on this medicine I have gotten some better but like I said I have only been on it for 2 weeks. So I will just be patient and see what happens in the next few weeks and see if I notice a drastic change or not.

    Did you feel the dr realization before or after the pills. I tried to take the pill one day, but I had too many new symptoms, like pins and needles, bad Nausea, loss of appetite, insomnia and even worse was the dread.

    Maybe it will just take you more time to feel better,

    Hey Daisey,

    Good news these signs are promising I had these side effects "feeling out of it" Yet the benefits also 'better sleep less fatique,negative thoughts' A year on I feel normal and have started weaning off. They take a while to kick in but once they do the meds are very very good smile Hnag in there make sure you give them a good chnace to work wink

      Ok thanks because there's been times I'm ready to call it quits with the citalopram. Even tho today has only been 3 weeks. I'm not a patient person at all. I want to wake up and all this anxiety be gone. I don't like this foggy dream like feeling at all. Then I went to see my therapist today and they think I might have Adult A.D.D

      Hang in there Daisey I dont think anyone is pateint when it comes to our own health! I have a lot of good to say about Citalopram and plenty of others also! re-ADD at least they have some suggestions for how you are feeling the not knowing can be extremely frustrating so thats half the battle won wink
