    Hi Liam,were you getting the head pressure before you started taking the meds? Just that Iwas getting the same symptom & Citalopam eased it off a bit.

      I Would deffiantly give it another month liam, it could be that the cit is starting to work its magic on your problem, as like a lot of things in life, sometimes it gets worse before it gets better, i myself have 3 daughters, so its worth battling through it, as kids give you something to fight for , good luck, but remember, theres alleays people on here, whos been through it themselves & will help you through it.

      Hi Liam

      I was on 10mg for several years but came off old turkey. Big mistake. I went back on 5, then 10, now 7.5. I cannot seem to stabilise. 10 was too much for me the second time round so I've been on 7.5 for 4-5 weeks. I used to take mine in the morning first time round but even that didn't seem to agree with me the second time so now I take it at 3pm. However I am going to start taking it an hour earlier to see how that works. Also by cutting the tablet not 100% sure I'm taking the correct dose each day. Nightmare, but I think I need them. You are on early days yet so you are still getting side effects. The first tine round worked great for me, made the mistake of thinking I didn't need them anymore.
