    help.. going from 10->20mg of Citalopram (Celexa/Lexapro)

    Dear All,

    So I'm now 4-5wks into Citalopram 10mg. The initial (horrid) side-effects wore off, although I still feel a bit tired and a little "numb"... I do (though) feel a lot more 'evened out' than I was before. I went for a review appointment with my doctor a couple of days ago who I suggested I give it one more week and then go upto the 'recommended' dose of 20mg. The doctor suggested that it would make me feel a lot better- and would also help me feel more energetic, and sharper again (I've been feeling like my IQ has been chopped).

    I was wondering if anyone here had experience of going from 10->20mg. Am I likely to get another dose of side-effects? do you think it could help me feel better?

    thank you for your support in advance..

    UK, I have no experience with Celexa/Lexapro, but I do have experience with Zoloft. I just increased my dosage from 75 mgs to 100 mgs last night, and to be honest, the only thing I ever experienced with dosage increase is a bit of jitters, and a slight rise in anxiety, but it only lasted a few days and was gone. Hope this helps you some...((hugs)) Fox
