Hi Matt

I was upped last week from 20mg to 30mg of Citalopram, you might not think its side effects, but the anxiety was worse from upping but it will get better. I thought how can 10mg make me feel like this, but as hubby pointed out it is a 50% increase.

Hope you feel better very soon xx

Hi Matt,
I've been on seroxat for a long time and my doses have gone up and down. I've just gone up to 30 from 20 this week. How are you doing? X

Hi all,

I was wondering how you are now Bikermatt? I have recently increased my dose from 2.5 to 5 (I was trying to come off them) and am now going up to 7.5. I have to be careful and do things gradually as I am very sensitive to the side effects. I only increased 2 weeks ago but I am fretting because I am still suffering anxiety and sickness. I have had a few good days that I am trying to focus on but the negatives still creep in and hold me hostage a lot of the time.

I am trying to take it one day at a time but the bad days are so hard! I know I need to hang in there and the drugs will kick in eventually but I am freaking out about next week as my boss is back from holiday and I will have to tell her what is going on. I have managed to at least get to work mostly but have had to come home some days because I feel so bad. She knows I am not well but I have not told her what it is or about the tablets.

Anyway,hope you are feeling better now and the increase has helped you?
