I've just started on citralopram. Doctors have prescribed me this for anxiety and depression. I can't sleep, my hearts racing, I feel sick and feel dizzy. I haven't had much trouble sleeping before this as I'm so tired. I have a 2 year old and a four month old and I'm struggling to cope anyway and with not sleeping ontop of having a baby waking if I ever manage, I don't see how I can manage. Does anyone know of any better mediation or if this will go?. I'm only 5 days in and am on the edge.
I became depressed and anxious during my second pregnancy as I had a form of extreme morning sickness which was debilitating and I couldn't get to work during most of pregnancy or look after my first child. My husband then said the classic, 'I love you but I'm not in love with you' not long after giving birth and despite wanting to work on things I can't pull it together to try l. I feel I'm just pushing him away further. I'd love any advice on how to cope with anything from kids, heartache to medication as I've really not been in a position like this before and I'm feeling desperately anxious with utterly everything and so low I feel like I'm being an awful mother. I don't see how I can work on my marriage when I'm such a mess! I love my husband and want to be with him, but I'm so hurt as he says he resents me for not being myself and not making him feel wanted and I worry he has unrealistic expectations of family life. I can't cope with this crushing anxiety as I'm up now in the middle of the night with what I think has been a panic attack
