firstly sending you well wishes !
Could anyone please help with some reassurance if they have suffered the same?
i started my journey 10 weeks ago after a complete nervous breakdown. before the breakdown life stressed didnt get me down as such - i let stress really get to me but anxiety and depression wssnt a thing for me intill one day it hit and i havent been the same me since! i wouldnt sleep well, horrendous anxiety in the mornings but always seemed to level out in the evenings.
Anyway, i started on sertaline - lasted 2 days on that made me violently sick and ill pupils were dialated like id been on ecstacy so GP changed it to citalopram 10mg and this is where my journey began! s
week 1 - first few days i thought wow this is a miricle drug made me feel good after a day even thi i had head ache and nueasea
week 2 - dealing with heightening anxiety in mornings, tiredness, yawning.
week 3 - back to work it helped
week 4 - morning anxiety disappearing started to feel myself again
week 5 - still feeling good but getting waves of depression - not a great week.
week 6 - felt great !
week 7 - GP increased my dose to 20mg ! felt no additional side effects
week 8 - starting to get morning anxiety back , yarning
week 9 - same but severe tireness !
week 10 - same and waves of depression throughout the day - night time calm.
will this ever just go away? i feel worse on 20mg!? should i have just stuck to 10mg?
