Hello all, I just wanted to give an update on my current progress and perhaps get some positive feedback. I submitted a post several days ago, but just to briefly recap..
I was stable on Citalopram 40mg for years, thought I was fine, decided to start decreasing my dosage and potentially go off altogether, but I think I did it way too quickly, and ultimately should not have done it at all. Over the course of a couple months I went from 40mg to 20mg, then down to 10mg, then 20mg back to 40mg.. Crazy. I know. I had no idea how badly this would screw me up.
Anyway, after about a week and a half back on 40mg, my anxiety has finally begun subsiding again, so that is progress.
However, I am still having issues both falling asleep and stayihng asleep, which is the main reason I think I'm still feeling so out of it. I miss feeling like myself, but I have to be confident that it will come in time again.
For sleep, I tried Ambien for a few nights, but that only puts me to sleep for a few hours and I still feel like junk.
Xanax helped with sleep even less, but I primiarly just needed that last week to help with the anxiety.
I think it makes sense that my sleeping would still be screwed up, but I'm obviously still scared and worried, like we all are during the darker times.
Does anyone have any recommendations for sleep? Has anyone had significant issues with sleep when messing with their dosage?
Thank you all so much.
