Was diagnosed with depression in October of last year. It had been coming on for a while but October a number of factors tipped me over the edge. I became so weepy and upset for no reason. The thought of going into work would make me feel physically sick and sometimes i would be wretching when getting ready.
I talked to close friends and it helped. I'd walk the dog more, vent some energy. I tried my hardest to make an effort and go out etc but sometimes it just didnt happen.
Eventually the doc tried me on Fluoxitine 20mg which was upped but it has some side effects so we tried citalopram.
Ive been up and down since, but mainly feeling better than I was, still low but a bit more in control the past month or so. I am now on Citalopram 40mg's a day. This seems a lot compared to others doses I am reading about on here.
This morning however (and an episode last week) ... I got into work and just had a total meltdown. My heart was thumping and i couldnt hold back any tears. I'm now home trying to calm and I thought typing it out would help. I feel so lost and I dont know what to do.
I know I have barely been feeling this compared to the legnth of time some people have been going through it but I just dont know what else to do. I am loosing interest in the things i loved and urrrgh .... I dont know. My memory is awful now too and i cant concentrate.
Anyway ... sorry for ranting. I just needed to vent.
Thanks for reading this.
Only question i have is does anyone else take the same dose of Citalopram that I do? Seems high compared to what ive read.
