I've been on citalopram 20mg for 4 years and felt amazing. But they pooped out. I was given mirtazipine to take alongside my citalopram and after 8 weeks I hit rock bottom with depression and anxiety. My doc decided to take me off mirtazapine and increase my citalopram. I've been off mirtazipine for 6days and on 30mg of citalopram for 6 days. Have to increase to 40mg tomorrow. Has anyone had any success yet n upping their dose because right now I can barely function and seem to be getting side effects like nausea bad anxiety and depression seems to be bad too. How long does it take to work or how long do the side effects last because I can't cope and feel like I'm never going to get better x
