  • Sounds like me...started with citalopram but didnt do nothing..now I am on Sertralin since 2 years. ..way better! But remember everyone reacts different. Take care you are NOT alone!

  • Think it's still early days they take ages to get into your system properly and sounds like they are starting to now , I take mine am too and have sleep disturbance but it does get easier give it a bit longer try not to worry it does sound normal if your still not happy tho do go back to your GP . All the best .

  • I'm not taking any anti anxiety Meds but I too wake up off and on all through the night....for years. I too have head pains, but I also get severe headaches....for years๐Ÿ˜“. I do suffer from anxiety and health fears. Not sure about your meds causing this as I seem to have same thing. I shake (inside) at night and often have a feeling of dread.

    Hope you are doing better today....
