has anyone found they have suddenly grown more sensitive to citalopram or any ssri? i have been on it off and on since 2010, the highest dose being 30mg around 4-5 years ago. 3 years ago i cut down to 10mg as i found out i was pregnant which i have been on ever since.
Depression and anxiety has crept back in (i'm sure its hormonal as i'm breastfeeding and the anxiety coincided with my period coming back but thats another thread altogether).
Twice this year i have tried to go back up to 20mg - first time i started up to 15mg from 10 and lasted 2 days as the side effects were horrendous - it was like i was on another planet and couldn't drive, sleep, eat, i was even hallucinating. Fastforward to yesterday when i decided to try again this time moving up to 12.5mg, however again today has been totally hellish. I experience the side effects every time but they're tenfold this time around, has this happened to anyone else?
also has anyone ever switched to another SSRI with less side effects? Sorry for long post!
