    Re: Feeling fed up

    That's because you are still thinking about it while doing these things. You need to find something that really takes your mind off of the thinking, something you maybe not used to doing that you normally do as second nature.
    A new hobby maybe, quiz programmes on TV.
    Nothing lasts forever and the way you feel at the moment won't either. x

    Then you switch to another. Fluoxetine isn't the only AD, and switching to another SSRI doesn't mean you start over again from the beginning. You will have built up some 'credit' while on fluoxetine.

    Hi Mrs Mitchell - perhaps you and I can help each get through this! I feel exactly like you. Today is day 7 for me on citalopram. This is my second time - and I too am having all those negative catastrophic thoughts - the biggest one of which is that it wonít wirk and I will be stuck feeling like forever which I couldnít handle. I also have a husband and 3 children and am very conscious of the impact of this on them. As Ian says we just need to take one day at a time and be patient. I am thinking of you 💕

    Re: Feeling fed up

    Hi all thank you for your lovely messages of support which is really desperately needed right now.

    I am shocked at how bad life feels right now. I have not had any bad thing happen in my life- such as a bereavement or anything like that- but yet I feel like it has happened- it does make sense why I should be feeling so bad.

    I know I need to be patient - and it is hard when every moment is torture.

    PDU that is reassuring as I thought that Iíd have to try FLU for 12 weeks (which seems like an eternity) and then have to try others for that period of time too - which means being ill for months - almost a year. It seems like the longest,darkest road in the world.

    Windywel- yes we can help each other through. How are you feeling today. I am on day 5 - so you must be on day 8 now. Are you taking the therapeutic dose of citalopram?

    Thing is before I took the meds- I used to have normal evenings- where I almost felt better. But now I donít even have that to look forward too. Itís just utter torture x

    Re: Feeling fed up

    So I have had loads of people ask to meet me today and I just canít face it.

    So many people have told me that they care about me and I have all that anyone could want - but I still feel awful. It doesnít make any sense. X

    Re: Feeling fed up

    I have been on 10mg for 5 day now- so I really have to wait for 7 days before I go on to 20mg??

    I feel like I am just wasting time as 20mg is the therapeutic dose. What is the point of the 10mg??

    The doc said 10mg at first to avoid side effects but Iím sure 2 days earlier shouldnít make that much of a difference x

    I think you should follow your GP's instructions, Sally. Fluoxetine is very activating and starting on the therapeutic dose too soon might make you feel a lot more anxious.
