In this case, the drugs do seem to be working. I have been taking Citralopram 20mg a day. At first the only effect was feeling sick. I was sceptical it would work, since the packet suggests its only for people with depression. But to be quite honest I was so desperate to get better that I would have tried anything. After about 6 weeks I started to notice that sometimes I could think more clearly and was a lot more calm. I don’t feel like I’m on something or drugged or drowsy, so the effects seem to be subtle.
Just looked up the spelling of Citralopram and noticed that there may be side effects following withdrawal – another little something to worry about!
