I've been on citalopram for 6 weeks now for depression
1 week 10mg
5 week 20mg
I've slowly improved over the weeks from being unable to leave the house and crying all day to being able to go out and do things if I force myself but still only maybe 50% of who I was before depression.
I've been advised yesterday to increase my citalopram to 40mg, when I started 20mg from 10 I was in a bad way, pretty much suicidal, I'm not sure if it was the increase or just my depression and loss of hope as I'd went months suffering before starting medication.
I have plans this weekends and have decided to wait til Monday to up my dose just incase the anxiety or any other side effects come back.
Just wondered if anyone had any experience jumping from 20mg to 40mg and what I should expect.
