  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • I am suffering from severe depression due to the terminal illness of my partner. Just lately, I seem to want to sleep all day and night. I find it hard waking up. I also have very little appetite and have noticed weight gain despite this. Two months ago I made an attempt on my life. Since then the citalopram has been doubled from 10mg to 20mg. I am also suffering with a stuffy head feeling and sore eyes most of the time.
