Hi all, I have been following alot of these discussions for a while which have been a great help. I was widowed in July, went through hell. Eventually prescribed 20mg citalopram just over 8 weeks ago. During and before this 8 weeks I have had excess energy, over anxious, frustration where I end up taking the frustration out on myself by self harming, I also had intention to commit suicide by drowning a few weeks ago and walked into the north sea, it was thinking about my grand children that stopped me. I often feel very aggressive and want to smash things up. I am still seeing my councillor too which is a great help. Last week I was at the point of feelng suicidal yet again my GP decided to up my dose to 40mg. I have at least gone two days without crying which is a start but I still feel very tense, aggressive wanting to self harm still. Will these feelings subside on the higher dose? I am getting emotionally tired of feeling like this all the time I just want it all to stop. At least I slept for about 6 hours last night which is the first for months, is this the start of the higher dose kicking in? I hope so as I have started back at work on a phased return which everyone seems to think will help. I haven't noticed any side effects so far except dizzy and shakes in the morning, will I be lucky and not get any others?
