I am on day 5 of taking citralopam 20mg and I am already experiencing the negative side effects; feeling lethargy on waking and having to drag myself out of bed, less energy, general feeling of nothing! It has reminded me of what I was like on Prozac up to November last year. However, it is starting to ease my anxiety and depression. I felt I couldn't go on with the level of anxiety and depression that I was suffering. I wish I didn't have to take the AD. Physicly i had never felt better while off AD. I hope when I have some stability I will be able to try again and be free of these symptoms.
Prescribed antidepressants most of my life; unable to recall when I wasn't taking them! Currently prescribed 20mg Prozac daily.
