After 12 weeks of councelling my lady decided that it would be a good idea to see the doc for anxiety/depresseion test. I scored well.....quite high on both so i to have now been prescribed citalopram. In a fit of rage/sadness i swallowed the first tablet without much thought. Crap feeling spacey, nauseaus, tummy upset etc today....2 days in. Really found reading your blogs useful it's nice to know im not alone coz man this feels like one lonely place at the minute x x

    Hi Ant, i'm on my third day now and feeling much the same as yourself. don't worry. and try not to think about it too much if you can, if you're anything like me you'll panic. i'm just super tired today and can't stop yawning which is reeeaaally frustrating. was v.sick the first day and second. ears feel funny today and very fuzzy head. today is a low day for me but keep reading all the posts on here because they help. it is good to know that you're not alone.

    Hi Ant,

    I'm on day 4 - I take them on an evening at around 8pm. I've found the night time horrors wake me up and then I'm restless throughout part of the night. I've been telling myself the only reason I'm having these horrible thoughts is that its the medication and its not real. I needed the loo 2 nights ago and felt too scared to go even though my partner was laid next to me. I made myself in the end but I can see how easy it would be to go into one!

    Hopefully this is the worst part at the beginning and it'll start getting easier from now on. I'm glad I'm only on 10mg as its a strong drug - I don't think I could cope with any stronger than this.

    Let's hope tonight is better night for us both. You're not alone!
