I’ve been on citalopram for 6 days now, started off feeling pretty awful the usual side effects that most people mention.. I’ve had blips of good moments and bad moments where for a second I’ve felt really positive but just as quickly it turns into a downward spiral.. can anyone tell me how long it will take to fill like I’m really noticing a difference? Just want to get back to bring me.
How long does citalopram take to work?

You may start to feel some improvement during the first couple of weeks. It may take 4 to 6 and in some persons 8 weeks to reach full therapeutic benefits from this antidepressant.
