Citralopram - when will it start working

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi everyone. Im coming into week 7 of taking citralopram. A couple of weeks ago I had been feeling much better and thought I was on the up but last week felt really bad and went back to the doctor who upped the dose from 20 to 30mg. He suggested it would take a couple of weeks to kick in and for me to feel the benefit but at the moment i am feeling terrible and experiencing the side effects I got when I first started taking it eg feeling sick and no appetite. Im finding my anxiety is terrible in the morning and eases off through the day. Is this normal or am I going crazy? Do i need to go back to the doctors? Any advice would be much appreciated.
