Hi all. Basically i had 1 week of less anxiety and only sleep issues. This morning I feel as if I have taken 2 steps backwards! Anxiety with waking, shakey, foggy head etc.. Is this normal? Been on Cit nearly 5 weeks.

    Hi Robin

    I'm on week 5 too and I am definitely feeling the same as you on respect of side effects. I think we need to give ourselves another week or so as people say it can take 6 to 8 weeks before we see the benefits. I know it's a slog but we can do it!! Stay strong we all will get better but for us it may take a little longer for our symptoms to go.

    Thinking of you keep me updated

    Yep, this is normal, it's how recovery works.  Don't worry more good weeks will come back, plus bad ones, but each time thr bad ones will get less intense and last less time.

    Its always 3 steps forward and 2 steps back in recovery.  Eventually it'll all smooth out and you'll feel good all the time.  Just let the feeling be there, it'll disappear again in time.
