Dear Worried,
No, you're not mad ( that probably wouldn't feel as uncomfortable as this ) --- but you're probably Depressed. Cipramil ( or the cheaper, equally efective generic version Cilift ) is efective, but nothing cures any real Depression in 2 months --- and if one quits the medicine too soon ( around 9 months would be wiser ) it is typical that the depression returns, perhaps with different symptoms predominating. So check with your doctor / shrink, and potentially start on the Cilift again, and this time stay on it until the chemical turmoil of the Depression is fully over.
