Hi guys,

So I have been on citalopram for almost 5 months now. 10th for 10 weeks and 20mg for the rest. The past while I have felt the 20mg is too much. My muscles seem unable to relax and I feel like I'm in a constant fog.

Does anyone think the 20mg could be too much for my system??

Thanks x x

      Hi yommy, I'm on week 22 of 20 CIT. I just started feeling good for days on end about 2wks ago. This med takes it sweet time and will through you a slight curve now and then but for me nothing I can't brush off. As others have posted stay we it time and perseverance will overcome. Stay busy keep your mind occupied and all of a sudden you'll realize "hey I'm good ".
