hi, i started taking citalopram around 5 weeks ago. i started on 10mg alternate days, and increased to 10mg every day. awful side effects. i then increased to 10mg /20mg alternate days but still had a lingering feeling if dread. i tried to increase to 20mg every day but felt dreadful after one day. i alternated between 10mg ang 15mg for around 10 days and now im at the point where im taking 15mg each day. ive been taking 15mg eaxh day for 4 days now. ive had a few decent days (very few palpitations and feeling okish). i have been using diazepam 2mg and propanolol 10mg when needed (i didnt take much) but havent had any for a few days so thought i had really turned a corner!
last night i had very wierd dreams - like hallucinations but they felt so real! and this morning i feel very nervous (butterflies) and sense of dread returning. did i do the right thing increasing the dose or should i increase to 20mg?
got a dr appt next week so will ask then but just wanted to ask here of any personal experiences.
ive been off work and thought i was going to be ok to return but now im now so sure what to even say to them!
