Hope you are all doing as well as you can. I have a question regarding Ciralopram as I've been taking it since last Monday (and with the side effects that I understand are very common, what a journey that's been already!). I'm on 20mg a day.
Today I saw an occupational therapist organised by my employer as they are concerned about my depression (they are being helpful rather than trying to manage me out or anything like that). He is a doctor and he said that my dosage wasn't enough and I should be on 40mg. He was a bit of a div and actually described my dosage as "homeopathic"!!
He said that the likelihood is that my doctor will up my dose to 40mg but I read elsewhere that 40mg is the maximum dose a human should take in a day so I'm a little worried. Like I mentioned, I've had all the side effects from nausea to shaking and the feeling of being really spaced out. I'm concerned that upping the dose would be really bad for me but he was adament that that's what I should be on. I'm seeing my doctor on Monday for my 2 week checkup but I was wondering if anyone on here had had that experience?
