... taken 5mg for 8 days with not much of side effects at all. My question is this would I get side effects at this dose? I am alot calmer and I also take 1 mg xanax daily.I am thinking about going to 10mg next week so that would be 16 days at 5 mg do you think that the 5 is helping me? and will the 10mg give me grief lol I am hoping someone has been through this exact situation. thank you so much
As soon as you take the full dose the sooner you will feel better for the long term. It can take between 4-6 weeks to get the full benefit. More than likely its the xanax you take to give you the quick calming effect as well the xanax will help if you experience any side effects. If by chance you experience any negative side effects it would probably only be for a short time. I hope you feel your best real soon.
Hi, i truly believe that at 5mg, the Citalopram won't be of any therpeutic value. 10mg is the minimum dose prescribed, and that is for mild anxiety. It worries me that you've had the medication for so long without taking it, and i'm presuming you are starting it now without your doctors knowledge? Not lecturing you! I think it would be wise to speak with your doctor so he/she can guide you on dosing, and hopefully this will see an improvement in your anxiety sooner rather than later...
