Hi all, I was diagnosed with depression and anixety. I was given citalopram 20mg I went through hell the first 2-3 weeks and I finally went to my doctor and told him my side effects as they were unabareable at the start.
In my 4th week he said to come of them as I still had some side effects that were bareable compared to the start. So he said come of them start taking 10mg instead of 20mg for a week then next week take 10mg every other day for a week and start this "proponolol"
So I did I drop my dose to 10mg and for 4/5 days I felt amazing I mean this was the first Time in 6-7 years were I was actually excited to get out of bed in the mornings and go out and smile. I was social I was excited to see people my friends, my girlfriend. The smallest things that I just never done, simple things like just talking to my girlfriend or even watching a movie with her was so just good. I was happy! I felt the way I felt when I was 15 with no cares in the world just loving life..
I am currently starting 10mg every other day for a week and stopping and I am feeling down and feeling like sh*t, getting annoyed easily snapping at people not wanting to leave my bed not wanting to spend anytime with anyone! I am woundering if citalopram started working when I started to come of them?
I would bare the side effects if I could just be happy again like I was for 4/5 days back to the normal funny guy constantly smiling and laughing. Has anyone experienced this? what should I do? I have a doctors appointment in 2 weeks but I might go see him before that but it is hard as the last week my sleeping pattern is messed up!
