    I take 20mg and been on them for quite a time now, if anything I am slower, although quite calm, your dose is higher than mine and it is hard to know how you feel on your higher dose. I take 75mg Amytrptalene, both at night and feel a little tired till teabreak at 10.30 when I have a second black coffee.

    It may be a good idea to cut the 10mg tablet and slow down on the withdrawal you may feel better for that as the reduction of the medication may take longer than an increase

    Good Luck we are always around

      I stopped the cit for 2 days then started the sert. It so far hasnt effected my vision. I find sertraline better and was told by my gp that they no longer advise cit for anx as it can make most people worse. Made me worse tbh its similar to sert but i find sert easier to handle

      How long ago did you change to it? What side effects have you experienced? Sorry for all of the questions I just increased my dose of citalopram and it has increased my anxiety! Very frustrating.

      Sorry about that I thought that was side effects to the citalopram. Thank you so much for the info. So has it taken your anxiety away? Do you feel like it works better for you than citalopram?
