I am an 18 year old uiversity student who was recently diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety disorder and depression. My psychologist referred me to a psychiatrist after about three appointments and the psychiatrist prescribed Citalopram 10mg for 7 days and 20 mg after. I have currently been on Cit for 5 days and at just ten mg I am sick to my stomach, having anxiety spells, and feeling jittery, having trouble sleeping. As a student the sleep I get is important and I was wondering how long in your experiences it has taken for the side effects to go away.
In terms of helping my anxiety and depression I have felt slightly more mellowed out in terms of emotions (no crying spells or negative thoughts) but other than that I do not feel like myself. If you could share your experiences I would greatly appreciate it.
