Hey everyone, I apologize in advance for the lengthy post. I just don’t know where else to turn.
I posted a couple years ago at the peak of my anxiety struggles and climbed out of the hole I was in on 20mg of citalopram. Things were going great for over a year.
I fell back into anxiety after an unknown and accidental switch in manufacturers (from Aurobindo to Dr Reddy.), which I read could cause adverse effects to some, I didn’t realize I even changed manufacturers until I was a wreck again. which prompted me to check the label. This was accompanied by the usual heightened anxiety, lack of quality sleep, appetite plummeting, etc.
I figured I needed to give the new manufacturer a chance. After giving 20mg Dr Reddy a try for 9 weeks with little improvement, i made the switch back to 20mg of my original manufacturer (the same dosage that worked for me a whole year anxiety free). It’s been about 10 weeks on this medication and unfortunately I’m still struggling and don’t know if I should try to increase my dosage to 30mg. Or maybe 25mg? I’ve been given the option to do so if I’m comfortable with it, but part of me is afraid of dipping back down into the world of side effects. But I’m also not contempt with where I’m at losing weight and feeling on edge. The only thing keeping me sane is reading, meditating, and the occasional gym session, but I just don’t find excitement to be a thing in my life currently
I hope you guys can provide a bit of insight for me as I don’t know where else to turn.
Thank you everyone for your time and help
