Hi everyone,
I've been on Citalopram for nearly 6 weeks. it's been up and down but I finally feel like I'm getting better. I increased from 15mg to 20mg at the weekend, and on Sat and Sun didn't feel any side-effects, but I took the cit around midday and had lots of sleep. Monday and Tues I've been at work, taken the tablet about 7ish and have felt quite spaced out/lightheaded. I guess it's just mu body getting used to the increase but just wanted some reassurance.
Thanks x

Totally normal to feel spaced out for a few days. My relative feels like this at first when they increase their dose, before it settles down and controls their anxiety (not depressed). Hope you feel better soon x
