Hello,

I am now on 12 weeks of 20 mg but still feel my head foggy. Also, I feel tired throughout the day. I get frustrated because I want to feel normal again. 😕

    Speak to your doc about this, you might need to increase your dose to 30, or perhaps 40 mg.  my head is still foggy, but I only started citalopram less than 4 weeks ago, I started on 20, then a week later went up to 30, then only last Sunday I upped to 40 mg.  good luck

    I would talk to my Dr and swith medication.

    12 weeks is too long (for me) to feel sick.

    Actually, I don't think I would have even given IT 12 weeks!

      Thank you for the response. I was told SSRI take a long time to work. You have some good days and some bad before you level out.

    I didn't think I'd last 12 week ... but I'll be there in a couple of days ... I have got a definite improvement in mood and the anxiety caused by the depression and hightened by the citalopram almost gone .... going to give it till the weekend and re-evaluate if I want to go up to 30 .... well 25 then 30 .... uni back in 4 weeks so hopefully by then things will be back to normal ... I just noticed one day last week that I didn't have the foggy head feeling hopefully you will soon ... I'm also getting counciling see your gp about it ..good luck x
