Mood change - week 9!

Edited , 7 users are following.

I have been on 10mg citalopram for 9 weeks now the side effects are slowly decreasing i really suffered at the beginning with headaches/nausea and dizziness, but the anxiety is still lingering in a morning which ive read is normal. I have noticed though the last week my mood has been low...just really flat like i cant be bothered to do anything i cant really describe it. Anyway is this a sign i need to up my dose or stick at it and try ride through it? I just really really dont want to increase if i dont need to and get terrible side effects again. Thanks x

    Stay the course. 10mg works for me. When I started I went through the lows you describe. It does go away. You will wake one day and ahhh its gone. Glad you're feeling better.

    it's normal I guess have a question does ur flat , low I call it ☺ still come with crying spells

    because I started day 2 on week 10 today and still have the morning side effects from Celexa the nausea and headache and then the crying from the anxiety. Do u have that I get it still every morning so far . Yes I also feel low , flat and sad and cry how about u ?

    How are ur evening doing ? Do u take anything for anxiety?

    Stay on ur 10 MG I read on the blogs it gets better by the weeks not days

    I'm staying on the 5mg the Dr gave me until week 12 I hurt it gets better by then like

    balanced out

    so I give it the 3 month and see I think u should to ☺
