I started Citalopram(also on 20mg) in the middle of December. My mood has been up and down. Some days I just "there" and other days I still want to (sometimes do) cry. Some days my world is cloudly and other days everything is so clear. I am experiencing nausea(refuse to vomit), headaches, inability to sleep(already had this problem), drowsiness, sweating, and drymouth. Right now I'm going through withdrawal because I failed to realize I had to contact my doctor for more pills(going to pharmacy this morning). I am dizzy, even more tired than usual, and more irritating and my mood is just shot.. I thought my sleeping problems would magically disappear because those "thoughts" would cease to exist because of the meds. Maybe it will get better time or I will have to treat that problem too. I have been wondering a few years If I bipolar because I act like my nephew who has been diagnosed as bipolar. My apetite has decreased, so I have lost 12 lbs since December. I seen my g.i. doc last week and he asked about
my mental state(too late primary doc put me on the meds cause I finally asked). He was saying something about
a psychiartist and adding meds or uping the dosage. But it takes a while to get fully in your system.
Don't judge a book by its movie.
