Anxiety still there and feeling really low I was on this med for year then stopped taking it because I had a low and doc said it stopped working for me tried loads of other med with no joy .

does anyone think it could work for me again ? As anyone tried this med again after stoping and it worked ?

    Hi. Im sorry you feel astho your goin backwards. Iv only been on 10mg for 4 days and im already seein a diffrence so is my patner and mum. Iv only had very light side effects atm so am hopin it continues to work. Maybe if u feel astho its not workin u should see your doctor? Iv heard people can have good days on cit and then really bad days. Sorry im not much help but please let me know how i get on and if the doc gave you an alternative. X

    Hi Don

    Sorry to hear you are not feelin any better I just checked i am 6 weeks and starting to improve. Today out with bridge this morning then grocery shopping and then come home and mixed and cooked up 13 riss oles. First time in a while i normally just have a salad and a bit of chicken or steak. But to actually start from scratch was something i havent done for at least 3 mths. So  a big improvement mornings still wake early 4am and sometimes can manage to snooze on and off till 7am and definitely not so sad in morn. I am not 100% so i hope there i more improvement to come they  say on here 3 mths full benefit. Maybe doc needs to up your dose I go back Wed so i am going to ask about increasing but will hang in there It may not be the one for you
