?I have been taking citalopram 10mg for 6 weeks and am still very tired. I know that the dosage is low but I am pretty sensitive to the side effects, I had daily diarrhoea for 4 weeks, scared to break wind. I was on venlafaxine 2 years ago and terrible trouble with the induction, panic attacks. Took sertraline for 1 day before Venlafaxine but had diarrhoea within half an hour.
?I'm looking for some guidance as to whether it is too soon to give up, my depression anxiety has lifted a bit but the tiredness along with the morning nauseousness and loss of appetite is getting to be bit of a drag. My doctor has suggested that I continue for 2 more weeks and up dose to 15mg if no change and then if no change consider changing.
?I have concerns upping dose due to side effects, especially the diarrhoea, although I still occasionally experience that.
?I have concerns about changing due starting the journey again with no guarantee of a better outcome, dr has suggested mirtazapine or lofepramine, not to keen on the weight gain of M or the several times a day of L.
?has anyone experienced the tiredness reducing after 6 weeks, how long can it take to go.
should I just power on and for how long.
?I'm a mid forties man, I have had bouts of milder depression throughout life which have not required treatment but required treatment 2 years ago due to loss of dear friend, 4 years ago, and work stress. I most probably stopped venlafaxine too soon 8 months, and fell back due to more work stress due to understaffing.
