I've been in bed for 7 days. Been crying uncontrollably and have suicidal thoughts. I was on citalopram for 5 years but my doctor and I decided to come off it about 2 months ago as it wasn't helping anymore. I was still having episodes of severe depression and mood swings. I expected some kick back from coming off the pills but nothing like this. For the first time my suicidal thoughts scare me and my mood swings are terrifying. I managed to get myself to the GP and she prescribed me venlafaxine which I haven't tried before, and she's referred me to a psychiatrist. I feel really lost at the moment.
