... anxiety and depression as i am frightened of the side effects of the citalopram i have taken 1 this morning and feel dizzy and shaky and am very thirsty
Dear beechcroft, Please don't worry about taking citalopram. I have been
taking 20mlg every a.m. for 7 years. I eat a little breakfast first. It has really
helped my depression- alot! And combined with a little diazapan for your
anxiety, you should feel much better soon. Just give it time to work, O.K.?
Hi, it will take you time to adjust to the Citalopram, 4 weeks give or take. It can be pretty rough at the beginning, i had pretty bad symptoms for the first 3 weeks, until my doctor changed the dose. I now wouldn't be without them, they have changed my life for the better. Diazepam will help with anxiety and will aid sleep, but the 2 work much better together when treating depression. Try to get through the induction if you can, i'm sure it will be worth it.
