Been on citalopram 20mg on and off for ten years. Everytime ive came off meds im back on them within 3 months if not before. I seem to suffer anxiety and depression. I was reduced to 10mg from 20mg but have fell back down. Been too docs and upped my dosage to 20mg again. Im on day 9 and im not feeling any better yet. Feeling very tired exhausted even very weepy and nervous and my sleeping pattern all over place. You would think i would be used too this by now just wondering if anybidy else like this and is 9 days too soon for improvement x

    BTW a different doc finally gave me 2mg of diazapmam for 3 x day for 12 days - just to help me throught the day and said if if I'm still feeling so anxious after 2 more weeks he may change me to Sertraline.

      ooops sent too soon. Was going to ask, did you ever have or could you get something similar to take the edge off? Hopefully this time next week we will both be in a better place x
