I was diagnosed with PP 8 weeks after having my second boy after spending a couple of weeks or more feeling like I just couldn't wake up and smelling bizarre smells etc. I was prescribed Citalopram and mid-diagnosed with postnatal depression. This made my symptoms worse and I couldn't even go to the toilet alone. Finally I was put under the crisis team daily and changed to mirtazapine. A lot of my symptoms disappeared but I found myself anxious to a point of sitting shaking and feeling overwhelmed no matter what I did. I was then also prescribed quetiapine. I have been doing so well, just the odd little spell... Until now, I'm moving house and have a lot of different things on my mind and I just keep feeling not with it, daydreamy and panicky and my memory is terrible I.e not even remembering things I've just done and then if course I start worrying about it. Someone tell me it's not just me?! my baby has turned 8 months so I've only been on both treatments about 4-5.
