I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.
You have lot of depression symptoms.
And citalopram is not helping.
Hence, a different medication needs to be considered.
In your case, Bupropion will be better choice.
Bupropion will provide energy, motivation, better attention span.
It also helps with the daytime activity level.
Starting dose is 100 mg daily, then can be increased to 300 mg daily in 100 mg increments.
Also you need some blood tests to check out thyroid gland function.
Hypothyroidism can also cause all these symptoms.
Diabetes, vitamin B12 deficiency, liver and kidney functions also should be checked.
Your Gp will be helpful in ordering these tests.
The change of medication should be discussed with your psychiatrist.
Thank you very much for the information. i will research that medication as am unfamilliar with it.
commonly used for symptoms you are currently experiencing with excellent response rate within 3-4 weeks.
