    Hi Linda,

    Did you mention to your doctor that you are a little worried about taking the 20g. I am speaking to my doctor today, and I am worried they my up my dose also, I think its worry of the nasty side effects.

    At the moment I am getting very bad tension headaches, which was mainly why I was put on citalopram, as they believe I was depressed so causing these headaches.

    Hope you are ok, try not to worry to much. Jem :D

    hi Jemma, i spoke with dr he said 20mg was the effective dose, i dont get the tension headaches but i have read lots of posts where people do, so i think this is fairly common hopefully they will go as time goes by ive been getting sciatica like pain think anxiety is propably playing a part with this as ive been sitting about alot & quite tense, (im so lazy at the mo) hope all goes well with dr for you, its still early days x
