Day 17 on 40 Mg citalopram

Posted , 9 users are following.

Feeling like a rollercoaster the last few weeks. Celexa has helped me so much in the last 2 years but I feel like I’ve lost myself so much this time around. I’m so insecure and down all of the time. I have more good days than bad on the 40 MG. But today is one of those “bad” days. I’m also going through a separation and I’m very stressed. Could use words of encouragement during these times of struggle sad

    I fully understand how you feel. I just increased up to 30mg and it's been a battle . Today is my 15th day on 30mg. I'm not having an awful day but it's been a battle in my head all day long. Yesterday was by far the best day I've had in weeks . I'm hoping that things continue to improve. I'm sure if you felt good before you will feel good later.

      I think it will continue to get better for you as well. I know it takes about 2 months to completely start working. It’s a battle every day in my head and I try to just stay busy and stay thankful for the moments of peace that I do have now..., Before there was zero peace at all. That’s why I do believe it’s working (slowly but surely) 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 Keep in touch so we can see if it gets better and help one another/others who are struggling with all of this too !

      Nicole that would be so awesome. We are basically at the same stage. Yeah, I def find a little peace when I can talk to someone that understands . It's really hard to talk to people that don't understand what is going on.

      Now at 6 weeks I'm finally get relief. I promise no matter how bad it gets in your head you are not crazy and the meds made yours thoughts worse before they get better. I almost checked myself into a hospital a few weeks ago now I have mostly good days

      Hi, I hope everything is well. I am doing a great deal better! It’s been about 5 weeks. On 40 MG. I have noticed that I am so much more relaxed. Things don’t bother me as much. I’m not nearly as emotional and I am not crying all of the time out of sadness and hopelessness. I feel peaceful. I feel hopeful. Life is good. I do still have my moments and I get a little blue here and there but I’m trying to combat that with church and staying busy with new friends and activities. Before I couldn’t even bring myself to care enough to even talk with new friends. There has absolutely been progress and I’m feeling much, much better. I pray that in the next few weeks you will update that you feel the same as well. There were many times. Like 5 or 6 different times I almost checked myself into the hospital. I’m not feeling anywhere near that bad anymore. I hope this helps you. Please remember to stay as hopeful as you can and keep the faith even when you have nothing left in you. It will get better. 😊??🙏🏼

      I’m feeling so much better. I’m on 40 Mg. It has been about 5 weeks. Not nearly as empty or hopeless as I was before. I feel like life is good! I have moments of sadness but it passes pretty fast and I’m not in my head so much like I was before. I feel peace. I pray you feel better too, hun. Keep in touch. You’re not alone in this. It will get better for you. Hang in there. Sometimes it takes a few months 🙏🏼😊??
