Sorry to be posting about depression again. It has been three months now since the start of this nasty episode of depression. I was put on citalopram 40mg back in april (change of meds, I had been on other AD for 5 years). I keep reading forums about people who saw their depression start to lift after 4-6 weeks etc and I am just despairing because mine has not lifted yet. I seem to have the odd better day when I have a more positive outlook, more energy, keep busy etc then it's back to doom and gloom. My OH says I am definitely getting better but I personally can't see the light at the end of the tunnel and it's making me worry and despair. Do you think that it is normal that after such a long time I still don't see pleasure / interest in the things I normally love? The mornings are tough, I am not sleeping very well and my appetite is up and down a lot. My GP says citalopram is a very effective drug but I am just worried it's not going to work for me as by now I am normally out of the woods. GP seems to think it is best to stick with citalopram and have CBT therapy instead. But what if she is stubbornly refusing to see the treatment is not working? I know all this negative thinking is part of depression but I just don't know what to do to get back to my happy self. I am hoping CBT can help me, it has in the past. Any reassurance would be welcome. Sorry to be so needy but I am just going through a tough time.
