Is citalopram any good, and how long does it take to work?
I have been suffering from severe depression and anxiety and general "weird" feelings since being in the menopause. Tried different stuff, but now have citalopram, which the doc says is an "amazing" drug. I am also on a low-ish dose of seroquel for anxiety, but I think I will be weaned off this eventally.
I've been on it for 4 weeks now, started on 10mg, then increased to 20mg, and finally 40mg, which I've been on for just over a week.
I did feel I was doing really well, but suddenly the last 2 days have slipped back big time, which is very frustrating to say the least.
Also, don't know if anyone can relate to feeling really bad in the morning with these drugs. I am thinking of switching to taking them at night rather than in the morning to see if this helps.
I've been told it can be anything from 6 weeks to 3 months for these drugs to work properly, but I think it's only those who have experienced it who can offer the best advice.
