I'd feel so reassured if I were to know that it can take several weeks to benefit from Cit. I started on Sertraline but after 3 weeks the side effects were all but bearable and my GP switched me to 20 mg of Cit. per day. The side effects of the Sertraline. wore off quite soon, and no side effects of the Cit. were apparent within the first couple of weeks but seem to have revealed themselves after about 3 weeks into the drug. Waking up in the morning, the effects kick in: dry mouth, sweating and dreadful nausea (yesterday morning I was gagging on an empty stomach - which is far worse/painful than throwing up on a full stomach). The symptoms typically subside as the day goes by but on waking, there they are to greet me.
My hope is that, if I persevere with the Citalopram, the effects will lessen.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
