    Did you have any side effects when you started to take amitriptyline?

    Same for me but it lasted 6 weeks.
    Tired but couldn't sleep.
    Switched to Lexapro.

    Hi spaceranger

    Thatís exactly what Iím experiencing :(

    Did you switch to Citalopram straightaway, as in from one day to the next?

    How long have you been on the cit?

    Donít be scared hun, honestly Iím not going to lie the start up for me was horrible, Iím still going through it now but it DOES get easier, ask for some diazepam to take along side it just for the start so that you have something to calm you down, fill fat milk for when you canít eat and plenty of laying on the sofa with good films. Me and wired are going through this currently, if you want to join the thread sertraline side effects no longer ok, please do, itís been tremendously helpful having someone to talk to about all of this and we are all
    Going through this together.
    For me the start effects were 10x worse than citalopram but the end result was 10x better and thatís why I chose to do this again when I needed to go back onto my pills.
