so after speaking to a mental health doctor today she said that because citalopram stopped working for me I should have never been put back on it in the first place.
she mentioned that she believes that the meds don't poop out but some people brain chemistry can change every 5 years or so and this effects everyone differently. so some people need a change in med when others don't but did say it was a poor choice from my gp to put me back on something I have tried to get better on twice. and that increasing dose wouldn't work.
that's fine but I'm just so annoyed that I've just wasted 7 months trying to get better when I've just been getting worse.
since I restarted citalopram I have had
resting heart rate around 140 all day and night
aches and pains
panic on and off
stupidly high sex drive that leads to irribility
she says this could easily be the meds or the fact that I haven't improved so have could be my anxiety but either way agreed I shouldn't feel that bad.
so now it looks like I'm gonna have to change meds Yet again! and I'm so fed up and angry that I've just wasted 6 months on a lost cause and have been getting worse and trying to convince myself I would get better.
so the next plan is lexapro as it's similar to citalopram so shes hoping that it will work well because I done so well on citalopram in the past.
my worry is that because it's so similar to citalopram that it wont work, hell, I'm worried nothing will work. I'm coming up to 2 years now of trying to get better and have lost all hope.
I have a baby coming in 20 weeks and am getting more and more desperate to get better.
sorry for the rant I'm just annoyed I'm back to square one yet again but worse than I've ever felt.
anyone gone through anything similar? or anyone tried a few different meds before they found the right one for them.
all hope is gone now x ❤❤
