I've been on Citalopram for over a decade and I'm wondering if the dose needs to be increased or something?

I'm not actively suicidal any more so I consider it to be working, but I'm not happy either... just sort of flat.  Do I need a dose increase or is it working and I just need to remember to take my vit B12 every day?

I know you're not doctors, I'm just after some feedback from my peers if possible please?   :confused0062:

Hi AG !

I was on those for a while but I found the effect wears off over time.
If you have a low mood most of the time id look to change to a more modern one.

Thank you Marvin... I'm going to try taking the Vit b12 supplements more regularly to see if it's because I'm low in that again, and the blood test I had yesterday morning will tell me in a week's time but other than that, I don't want to rock the boat too much in case it's my vitamin levels that need to be increased, rather than the AD like it was last year... I felt better after just 1 B12 injection than I ever have in my life!   :happy0158:

Ignore this thread... just squirted a couple of sprays of the Vit B12 spray into my mouth and my mood is already lifting, so the flatness is vitamin issues, not AD ones   :cheerleader:

It'll be interesting to see what the Vit B12 test comes back as 'cos I hadn't had supplement help for at least a week and the spray was a huge help this afternoon so I reckon it'll show I'm low again, just not as low as last time, so I'm gonna try and remember to load up on the supplements again every morning to see if that helps how I'm feeling   :happy0158:

Thank you Marvin!

Edit:- just loaded up on me supplements again and while the feeling isn't as quick or intense as yesterday, I'm definitely feeling more positive!
