Ok, so ive been having 20mg of citalopram for 5 weeks tomorrow for severe anxiety and moderate depression which made me agraphobic. Ive improved drastically and can go out now and anxiety has improved no end. Still not sleeping and this has been the case since the beginning of january when i first became ill. Saw the doctor 2 weeks ago and he asked how i felt about increasing me to 40mg of citraopram and i said howcome as ive only had 20mg for 3 weeks and he said they only just start to kick in at 3 weeks and 6 weeks for full effect so he said come back and see me in 2 weeks which is tomorrow when i go... and im nervous, not sure if i should have my meds increased, i feel not better but much much better then i was. Just feel tired as no sleep for almost 3 months and like braindead as im a pretty intelligent person but im off work at the moment as unable todo my job due to this and although im able todo simple things like cook a meal etc it takes so much brain power and concentration now. Can anyone offer me advice/support as to this situation.
