So I know this had probably been discussed somewhere on these forums but I wanted to post one for myself to get some positive replies, or helpful at least.
I started taking the Citalopram about 14 weeks ago, I was at 10mg for 3 weeks, then the doc upped it to 20mg, which I've been on for about 11 weeks. I was taking it for extreme anxiety, panic attacks, and some depression. Well I can say the anxiety is much better now, and I've not had a panic attack in quite a bit but I feel like something else is going on now, I feel what I think is more serious depression, never really had that too bad in the past until now. So, there has been some good and some bad. I feel so disconnected, overwhelmed, and just weird. Which doesn't seem to be getting better. Doctor said that he wants to increase my dose to 40mg but from what I've read on here and from actual peoples experiences that 11 weeks at 20mg might not be enough and I want to wait it out, but I also want to feel better and not waste another month or two.
Also, I've lost 16.5 pounds already after starting the celexa and still don't have much of an appetite. So, for those of you that are familiar with the Citalopram, what are your opinions? Possibly increase like he wants? Maybe try a different one because this might not be the one for me?
Any comments are much appreciated.
