Citalopram

Posted , 4 users are following.

For the past 6 months I have been dipping in and out of taking my meds, I'm in 20mg, some weeks I take them then other times forget, I was on holiday for a month and only took a few, but I'm back I have started to take them everyday for 2 weeks and my anxiety has heightened does anyone think this is a side effect because I'm taking them more regularly??

Please let me know

    I'm no doctor but I'd say definetly , when I went away on a trip for a week I was drinking a lot more than usual & I think this lessened the effect of my 20mg cit when I returned & drank a lot less the old side effects returned . I have subsequently reduced to 10 mg & have never felt better. The 20mg dose could be a little high for you.

      I've never felt this good for years thanks for asking. A few weeks ago I would never have believed things could turn around & I would be back to my old self , I had a lot of support on this forum with people saying " you will get your life back " but I was starting to doubt , my work life & home life stresses are all there but now it's water of a ducks back . Everyone just needs the right balance with this drug, & don't give up.

      I know how you feel I just wanted someone to flick a switch and I'd be better, it is a long process but I promise you'll get there, this forum is brilliant to have, day or night for the reassurance that us anxiety sufferers need, I am having a wee blip at the minute but I know I will overcome it but that's hard when I'm feeling so rotten

      Just be patient you will feel brighter soon x

      You will definetly feel better but it does take time for the cit to work , my first week was horrendous the lowest I've ever felt , I wanted to stop taking then but this forum & my doctor persuaded me to carry on but although the second week was better it was over a month before things settled. My only respite was reading on my kindle , I read more books in two months than I usually read in two years. Just stick it out & you will be happy again.
