I started taking 10mg of cipramil a month ago and got very bad side effects at the start, it was the worst two weeks of my life! Now a month on my anxiety is still through the roof( it got worse when I started medication), I've disturbed sleep, yawning constantly. I'm just starting to doubt it now even though most reviews are great. For me it's the heightened anxiety I just can't handle. My biggest fear is im suppose to be visiting Australia in 6 weeks(I live in ireland) and the thoughts of being like this going I don't think I could go!!! I need advice
Meds can work differently for each individual person. Usually after a month your symptoms should show some improvement. Citalopram is usually a good med to start with. It obviously is not helping your anxiety. You may want to look into Lexapro which is like the sister to Celexa (citalopram). It is suppose to have less side effects. Talk to your doctor about your options.
Hope you feel better soon :)
Dee82; Sorry you are having such a hard time but I do agree with Janie; But remember almost all of these medications they well have to taper you off some as they add the other and sometimes you well have to fight through that first week or two. If you do change you might ask the doctor for something more for the nerves for the first few weeks anyway. Good luck to you. Chuck1957
