May just be a coincidence of a mood change, but my intrusive obsessive thinking is awfully quiet all of a sudden. However, I've only been taking 10mg for 3 days… ???
Hi, yes it is possible to take effect quickly. The 4 week 'induction period' refers to the time period of when Citalopram is MOST effective, but people can get positive effects sooner than this. Be aware that you could have a dip in mood while the medication is taking its course, but please persist with it as it can be very effective in changing your life for the better
