Hi,

I take 10 mg citalopram but a couple of weeks ago I upped it to 20 mg, I felt ill so for the past couple of days have gone back to 10 mg. Some times I get good days but most times I get up feeling out of it. My head feels weird, I get tired easily and my body feels heavy and I just want to lie down. Sometimes I feel I don't want to make conversation, I feel so spaced out. Is this anxiety? I've had routine tests and heart tests, all ok. Could it be that I've messed around with my meds causing this? Thankyou

      Thanks muza, your reply is very encouraging. These weird feelings play havoc with the mind and it's hard to think positive. Very much appreciate your reassuring words. Take care. x

    Hi Juliannah,

    It's awful, truly the hardest thing to do but you must be consistent with your dose.

    It will pass and it will get better, we all have them dark days. You WILL feel better.

    Lots of love x

      Hi Angie,

      Very much appreciate your reply, you are right I know, I will stick with 10mg, I can't cope with a higher dose right now. Thank you for reassuring me. Take care. x
