Hey yall. Today marks 4 months for me on Citalopram. Still feeling very low and not happy. Didnt get any sleep last night after a hardcore drinking session. Only slept 1 hour and made me feel very terrible today. Should I still be feeling like this after 4 months. Its like I have fuzz in my brain and cant think or concentrate.

    Alcohol will definately mess up your sleep, as it's a depressant that will probably be why you feel terrible today. It can take 6 months for Citalopram to lift your mood, don't give up yet. If you want to keep drinking while on meds, perhaps you could drink a little less? Is the fuzzy brain from the hangover or in general?

      I'm not sure why it works but sometimes drinking plenty of water can help and fish oils - omega 3 and 6

      I will for sure give that a go. I just thought by now I would feel better after 4 months. Its like I dont even know where the last 4 months have gone. I feel like I have a brain tumor and no one is going to catch it in time. Can it really take 6 months for it to kick in?

      It's 3- 6 months. Have you gone back to your GP? They might ask you to increase your dose.

      I will be going back at the end of this month. Currently on 20mg so might want to up that to 30mg.
