I am on day 2 of 10mg of Citalopram after 2 weeks of 5mg. I find myself feeling down especially in the mornings. I had a lot of relationship anxiety and some depression which is the reason why I started taking the meds in the first place. At what point does this get better? Is this a side effect? I just want to cry and curl up in a ball. I don't feel this way until I am alone, I feel pretty normal when I am with my partner.

Yes, this is a common thing when going onto an antidepressant. Avoid anything that might be triggering for you, sad books, music, films, you name it. Do not allow yourself to go there. You should been feeling positive effects of it from two weeks onwards but for some it might take upwards of five but it's usually about three I think.
