ive been on citalopram 20mg for six weeks but I feel I’ve been struggling for the last couple of days. I don’t know wether I need to up it to30 mg or if I should give it more time. I’m desperate I can’t go on feeling like this anymore, mornings are awful.

    Hi Gemma.  I’m sorry you feel so dreadful, at 6 weeks you are at the cusp of starting to see a difference in you, 6-8 weeks is an average time scale where you will notice a change, I felt worse like you did then suddenly I just felt myself again, it’s like the penny dropped!

     Everybody responds differently to medication at different times,  your brain is undergoing a big change, give it time to understand, sit tight it will get better. Try not to get carried away with the moment and internalise every single function of your very being, I know it’s difficult and your having a rough ride at the min but hang on it will get better.

    Take care of you 👍

    Hey Gemma,

    I’m in my 11th week at 10mg. I hung in there only because of the adivice from great people here. I would give it more time. Have you cut out caffeine?  If not you should. I noticed a difference. A still had blips at 10 weeks and also I had a couple of days I had morning and afternoon anxiety. Today is a great day for me 🙏🏻🙏🏻 Which I’m surprised cause I only got 5 1/2 hrs sleep. But I’m also on vacation and chilling! Hang in there and keeps us posted. 

    Will😎

      Thank you for the support, it’s a cruel illness is anxiety. I woke at three this morning and have been sick with the anxiety, I’m so scared.
