Bugger. I've run out of citalopram

Am I going to feel rubbish? I went to open a new strip thus morning only to realise I don't have any more. I meant to go to the docs today to get a repeat & life took over & completely forgot. Tomorrow evening is the earliest I can get some more.
Will I feel awful tomorrow after missing two days?

I often feel low a few days after missing a dose, sorry this may happen to you but hopefully not.
If for any reason you can't get a repeat prescription tomorrow I've found that my local pharmacy who usually dispense for me will give me 2/3 days worth in advance and deduct them from the prescription when I get to hand it in. I've found it a life saver as I'm always forgetting to to refill my prescription I'm good time.

Thanks, fingers crossed the doctor will do a quick repeat as its a long weekend. I really should be more organised

Ask your pharmacist if they offer a repeat prescription service - quite a few do now - when I was on citalopram they'd sort the repeat for me and message to remind me to collect it.

I missed a couple of days and was ok, fingers crossed for you!

I did the same over Christmas - I rang the docs and the receptionist put through a quick repeat for me to pick up that day (normally they take 3 days here) so that's worth a try.
