Hi guys, I'm new to the forum I've been reading for a while.
I think its took about a year for me to reach the stage I'm at now. I went the doctor in november with concerns over my weight and fatigue. Within a minute of talking to him I fell apart. He told me I was depressed and prescribed citalopram 20mg. I became even more edgy and fatigued it was horrid but it did stop me crying. I went back this time I have a different doctor who increased the dose to 40mg. After two weeks I couldn't bear the fatigue any longer I felt completely stoned I can't think of any other description. The doctor has now reduced citalopram back to 20mg for one week. Next week down to 10mg with the introduction of 37.5 venlaflaxine. Week three stop citalopram then week four 75 venlaflaxine. I'm due to go back the doctor then.
In the meantime I feel terrible I can bearly leave the house all I do is sleep shower ...try to sleep ..try to clean the house.
Has anyone any advice I feel so low today its unbearable never thought I would get to the point where nothing makes me happy. I have completely cut
