    Hi Tracey

    Sorry you are feeling so low. I would certainly try citalopram again if it worked for you before. It's not an easy ride for the first few weeks but it does give you hope that things will get better. I'm on week 4 of an increased dosage and having relief for at least a few hours each day now. longing for this to become permanent but little glimpses of normality are reassuring. I'm afraid this horrid illness does take time to overcome. I've been beating myself up about taking time off work but then I just realised that actually I'm the most important factor and need to recover. You must do the same. Do whatever you need to recover. Read Katecogs on here. She is amazing. Her article on sensitized nerves completely changed my attitude and I stopped feeling like a freak. Big hugs to you. Hang on in there! x

    Going on citalopram for 2 years now, my life was horrible fo the last 3 years. Im currently taking 40mg, just got increased over a month ago. I have been doing better. Im not gonna lie, it takes a long f*****g time to feel better. There is no quick fix, it takes time to get your life back. My life still isn't the same, nor will it ever be the same. But I will tell you this, just keep fighting!

    If citaloprim worked for you before then it should help again via your doctor of course.

    It will take time to work so please be very patient,

    ONE very important thing I have finally learnt is that most of our anxieties are of course brought on by STRESS a demon of modern day life. I can only say that what has finally helped me more than the medication (although this certainly has its place for us), it is really important & ESSENTIAL to have ONE day a week to truly RELAX, chill out,

    do NOTHING, i.e. read books, maybe just watch some dvds this truly helps to 're-balance' ourselves & can thus often avoid / reduce our path to depression.

    PLEASE TRY IT!!! but medication can help us in the interim. (its a sticking plaster)

    Good luck
