I have been on citalopram for three weeks and haven't had a good night sleep. If anything I am more anxious than before taking the meds. I don't see the doc til Jan 6. Trying to stay on meds til then, but sporadic sleep not helping. Just want to give it a chance for my anxiety, but meds seem to be making it worse.

My PCP had me on the same thing at 20 mg.I tried it for a few weeks with no luck as well and more problems. They just changed mine over to something else, so hopefully it will help. Try and call your doc and see if they will go ahead and change it so you don't suffer for 3 weeks.

Yeah, I'm a genius. I don't take pills. This was my first. Was told by doc to take 10 mg up front for seven days and then take 20 mg after that. Well having never taken

Pills I thought one pill was 10mg and Two was 20 mg. Turns out I have been taking 40mg. Talk about jumping in head first instead if wading in. Hopefully This will help with my insomnia.

It is probably better for your exam if you are not responding well to drugs for anxiety. This points to difficulty in treatment and severity. If you go to your anxiety exam and you are sweating and your hands shake that is positive for anxiety. If the exam doctor sees you relaxed and at ease he is not likely to DX severe or even moderate anxiety. The doctors always comment on any distress they see.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
