Citolapram 10mg helped me ( 1 Month )

Edited , 3 users are following.

ive been taking citalopram for a month now my experience my side effects went pretty much within the first week and i had my first rocky days of feeling worse but after a month on the tablet i can honestly say i feel a lot better the only thing i noticed is i tend to stare into space quite often and shut out but its a nice relaxing feeling a month ago i was almost suicidal due to a trauma and without this pill i can honestly say i wouldnt of pulled through. what i realised is that you will question whether your dosage is helping you but 10mg 20mg 40mg they all work the same is what i was told by a specialist the lower dose just takes longer for some people. dont mess about with decreasing and increasing just stick at the mg you are comfortable with and give it a while to see how you feel is my advice.

    Thank you for posting this! It's encouraging to those new to the medication. Just started a low dose a month ago, and while I feel better than previously, have been wondering if I'm on the right dose as I still feel anxious and jittery. Can I ask if you felt improvements bit by bit, or all at once?
