Hi, I had a depressive episode 3 years ago and took citalopram which I eventually weaned off as I felt better and had bad side effects, most of which died down, except the night sweats that never left me.
The depression has returned after stressful life events, and I'd didn't really want to take tablets but felt like I had no choice. I have been taking fluoxetine 20mg for just over 3 and a half weeks, setraline was no good for me.
i haven't felt much improvement yet, I've had no side effects like those of citalopram, felt very anxious 2 weeks ago, and now just feel low. Quite tired, lack motivation, currently off work, and lost my appetite. I've been back to gp who feels it's too early yet to have much effect and I should continue with them.is this right? Will I feel any better on these? I'm having cbt too, just feel as though I'm not getting anywhere at the moment!
