What are your current coping strategies (if you have found any as yet?) xx

Such early days! I hope everything settles down real soon for you. Reference menopause and sleep i found magnesium supplements really helped me. I'm newly perimenopausal

Often with both depression and anxiety it does seem worse in the morning. I aren't sure if they know the reason why.
Maybe its knowing another day of struggles is ahead.
Life does get better truly. It may not seem like it right now, with the support of others and the right help it will be worth it the fight.
We are here for you x

Hi also new here. I’m the same as you I’m so anxious at the moment, can’t settle. Just started back on my meds so hoping they will kick in pretty soon.

citalopram was increased last Friday been on cbd since Monday so early days.xx

Hello Viv53, how are you feeling? I've been on citalopram 20mg for 2-3 years or so now, recently experimenting with withdrawing slowly to 10mg, feeling a bit odd now and then. Found things worse (anxiety/Depression) when tired- late at night and occasional mornings. Make sure you rest and take things easy :)
