I am new to this forum, and new to antidepressants as of about 2 weeks ago. I was on 5 mg of citalopram for 15 days and today was my first day of 10 mg. I had awful side effects, but they are starting to go away. I have been in a relationship for about 9 months and I was completely in love with her about 2 months ago. Now I feel distant and anxious every time I see her or think about her. After a few minutes, I feel fine, but I hate the initial feeling of anxiety and depression. I am hoping to be boosted up to 20 mg in 2 weeks, but I need some encouragement. Will citalopram help me feel close to people again? Specifically my girlfriend who I really don't want to hurt. I see a therapist and she is great and told me that I will feel better eventually, but I want to hear from people who have been there themselves.
