Just feeling down

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am on day 2 of 10mg of Cit after 2 weeks of 5mg. I find myself feeling down especially in the mornings. I had a lot of relationship anxiety and some depression which is the reason why I started taking the meds in the first place. At what point does this get better? Is this a side effect? I just want to cry and curl up in a ball. I don't feel this way until I am alone, I feel pretty normal when I am with my partner.

    First off, are you coming off the drug or just starting to take it?

    It takes at least one month for any of the good effects to happen when you just start to take it.

    Clarify if you ending or starting the drug.

    Three weeks is the norm for results. You will have some side effects and they will generally dissipate after time passes. CIT saved my life but it took me a few weeks to realise what had happened. Be patient and pay attention. Good luck

    Hey cosmickitty,

    Sounds like side effects I'm afraid…. very normal to think it’s worse when it’s your brain adapting slowly to meds just think of all those chemicals mixing around there’s bound to be a some funny thoughts and things going on as the adjustment takes place, there will be some discomfort but trust me it is worth staying on them longer than people prefer as they take months to really work.


    Take care
