the first week I felt a llt better, then noticed spells of anxiety and general "BAD" feeling. I finally was able to sleep at night but I am tired all day. Have only been taking it 4 three1/2 weeks but ive lost 7 pounds. Less overall cying but when I feel that bad feeling crying is more intense. Best affect is being able to sleep at night even though i am tired during the day

Comment:
I was very hesitant about taking anti depressants because I didn't want to feel like a zombie or something. But I found myself not being able to get out of bed to go to work or do anything. I started taking citalopram and after a week I felt a little better but not ALOT better. My dr increased my dosage twice. I feel much better. I don't cry at the drop of a hat for no particular reason an ... Show Full Comment
