I started Citalopram 10mg 12 days ago. Prescribed due to work related stress and depression. At first the Dr told me it would help me sleep, as well as kick starting my mood. I am starting to feel a little better, but my interest in running has yet to return. Along with my lack in exercise, I'm not sleeping, often awake at 1, 2, 3 am on the dot, then I lie awake till morning.
Dr said he would now give sleeping pills too, but I turned them down. 2 nights ago I took an over the counter remedy to help me sleep. It worked, but it zonked me out for the day after.
I just want to get back to the things I love. Like running, but now I'm scared and fearful of doing something I previously loved.
To top everything off, I now feel like I have an infection in my chest. Very frustrating, and getting me down.
Any advice, or words of encouragement?
