So despondent

I am feeling so despondent that my meds are making me feel so low- wish had never started them had sertraline for 2 weeks mainly for anxiety/ fear dread feelings and then dr switched it to citalopram as depression and dark thoughts were getting worse-how come some people get benefits with meds apart from few physical side-effects and others get worsening of anxiety depression symptoms -it all seems so hit and miss!

HI Maisie x I can understand that you are frustrated with the meds situation, but it really is a case of what works for one, is not always right for another x You have to keep going and remember that each med take a good 2-3 weeks to show its full effect, and if then its not for you, try another, you will find one eventually xx Donver


Thanks Donver-really scared -nothing helps me relax-tele reading all make me anxious plus not sleeping well which is prob making everything feel worse-wish I had confidence to stop them all like some have but scared that if symptoms overwhelm me will then be back to square one and have to start again !x


Hi maisie3 I find that any of the "drowsy" type anti-histamines helps with sleep Hope this helps x
