Citalopram 20 up to 40

I have been on 20mg for 7 weeks. Tomorrow I see my gp and it is going up at 40mg. Any thoughts? Did the increase help? Was it horrible? Did the initial side effects some back worse than when you started 20mg or easier? Advice?

Usually with ad's the side effects fade away once you're settled on a good dose. A lot of people quit before then because things can seem to get worse. It's worth pulling yourself through and giving it a go in my opinion although I don't know what side effects you're experiencing.
