    Thank you for your response. It's a horrible. Feeling like you can't take nothing in . Are you on citalopram ? If so have you been on them long ?

    Thank you so much for the message and support. I feel a little less anxious. But just still feeling so ill and have symptoms which worry me and now with this memory and strange feeling in my head and feel as tho the doctors are missing something. I have had a full blood count that came back all fine. Hope your feeling better soon. X

    Hi Samatha,

    Afraid so they are all side effects and common in first few weeks,months everyone is different however do you feel better mentally aside from the effects of meds kicking in?? It takes time for serotonin levels to increase hang in there!

    I to am having these feelings of not being able to take information in and doubting myself and memory loss.I think all I need is a good night's sleep and all will be ok but wake up 50% of the time having to make a real effort mentally to get myself going.I to thought I had been wrongly diagnosed but I do think this was a major reason why I started feeling anxious. I was worrying about health issues and could not stop thinking I was going to die. I had numerous checks and all have come back fine.

    But I keep telling myself it's the medication and all will work out in the long run. I am on week 8 now of taking 20 mg of CIT.
