    Hi nikki

    it doesn't sound like your antidepressant is working for you at all. If you are in bed a lot with no energy or motivation after a significant period of taking the med, then it may be time to try something new. you also need to find out whats causing your glands to swell. I know its hard to get the motivation to make an appointment with the gp but you really must. I stayed in bed for over five months and still do. I am now in the process of titration eg. Tapering off citalopram and introducing a new antidepressant.

    Please ddon't suffer needlessly and get the help from your gp.

    Here for you X god bless xx

      It's a newer version of citalapram, it works faster, and has less side effects.I was also on citi and went on Escitalapram, it's awesome for me. I was also on sertraline, and Wellbutrin before going on citi. Wellbutrin was horrible, sertraline didn't really help, but Escitalapram, really helps, I really didn't have any side effects and it seemed to make me feel better right away, of course everybody is different. If u can google it, there's a lot of info on it! Best of Luck!

    Hi Nikki

    Definitely give Escitalopram or Lexapro a go. Talk to your GP about this option.I do feel for you but give it a go and it does take time for most people to work.This is a newer drug with fewer side effects and a high success rate.

    here for you too.xx
