I have been taking Citalopram for about 10 or 11 weeks. I started on 10 mg and stayed on that for about 8/9 weeks, the side effects were pretty bad to begin with I had diarrhoea, nausea and fatigue for the first 4/5 weeks. I was still experiencing morning anxiety which seemed to clear mid afternoon.
After discussion with my doctor I upped to 15 with the extra 5 being taken in the evening rather than the morning (this was to hopefully smooth out the dose and maybe avoid a drop overnight/in the morning. This was 2 weeks ago. I felt much better for 1 week really back on track with much better concentration and reduced tiredness. after just over a week of improvement I have taken a step back with morning anxiety, fatigue and lack of concentration returning. Other side effects are not as bad a when I first started.
I am bit confused as it took a week or so for the side effects to start again after feeling much better. Is this normal.
Its is so disappointing as I thought that I was on the up after the good first week of increased dose.
