    Citalopram for A headache; Drive disorders; Sleep disorders; Depression

    Due to a very late recognized sinus vein thrombosis (head), I suffer for 11 years of chronic brain pain, which have a strong impact on my entire life. Unfortunately, normal analgesics do not help at this point. Tramal drops were prescribed for me, they help because they look central. But have huge side effects. Due to the chronic intake creates a dependency, Without it can not go, with going for other things like sexuality, lust for life, Apetit, and lost hope for a normal life. A severe depression developed, but I did not realize it until I was ready to wake up in the morning. Feelings for my little son or husband were blown away. The worse you were, the more you distanced yourself. I have worked so hard in my work that I have developed a so-called stress epilepsy due to the existing brain cortex due to my acute brain thrombosis. If there was too much stress then I got numbness in my fingers or in my shoulder. The closer it came to the seizure, the more it tingled in my head, in addition, there was a very enormous pressure on my head .– then came directly the cerebral seizure ……. After that, nothing went, I suffered Amnesia, did not know names or the reason why I was suddenly surrounded by doctors and hung up on an infusion. Only after hours did the memories come back. Many drugs have been tried, many with unbearable side effects. Unfortunately I am still not perfect today.

    Citalopram for Social phobia

    I was prescribed Citalopram 2 years ago for social phobia and mild depression and was virtually symptom free. Now the phobia puts a lot of strain on me again and I have decided to take it again. The first four days I took 10 mg and then 20 mg in the morning. The first four days I was very restless, loss of appetite, difficulty falling asleep, diarrhea and tremors. And I have to say that the NW are not particularly pronounced. Mood slightly improved, ao fear minimal decrease. But I still trust in the medi, because it really helped me a lot back then.

    I started with 10mg. Side effects were: nausea, vomiting, anxiety, loss of appetite, weight loss, hair loss, tremor, headache, insomnia, intense dreaming, nocturnal sweating …. so a lot of it has to be said. the whole thing lasted at least 8-9 weeks. then it was very slow effect! you have to be patient and go through hell first. In the meantime I only have sweat at night and unfortunately my skin is too blemished. But that makes life better than constant fear.

    Citalopram for Anxiety and panic attacks

    Hello everybody, I would like to tell you today about my experiences with the drug Citalopram, because I can imagine how some of you feel at the moment. Although every experience is individual, I hope to give you a little confidence today. I had also visited this site at the beginning of my intake and always wondered if this was helpful for me and if it was good for my permanent doubts about the drug. I am convinced that every one of us who is struggling with anxiety and panic attacks is happy that he is not alone in this world. It all started with me about a year ago with anxiety and panic states on the highway on the way home from the office home. Our office moved 3 years ago, since then we work in a large office with about 40 other colleagues. Until a year ago, panic attacks were a foreign word for me, even though I was not always psychologically the most stable and always assumed a slight depressive mood. I am a manager and have always struggled with problems in everyday work and tried again and again with sports to compensate for them. In my first panic attacks about a year ago in the car I had the feeling right to get a heart attack. Shortness of breath, toilets in the throat, tightness in the chest, tremors and the need to stop immediately. I then looked at it for 3 months, the panic attacks were irregular again and again. I developed a cardiac phobia, bought a sphygmomanometer because I kept thinking I was on the verge of having a heart attack and wanted to keep my blood pressure under control. At the beginning of October 2015, there was nothing left after the last panic attack was so severe that I presented to my family doctor and I was on sick leave for 3 weeks. He recommended taking Citalopram 20 mg, one of the best-tolerated drugs for anxiety disorders and mild depression. Full of hope, I took the first 20 mg the same evening. Unfortunately I have to tell you here that the first night was hell for me. Unfortunately, I had read the package leaflet of the drug before taking it and the side effects described there in about the same or imagined as described there. So after I had a sleepless night with felt heartbeat, internal burning like fire, restlessness, extreme anxiety behind me, I dropped off the drug the next day and made an appointment with my neurologist, which I fortunately got right away. I reduced the dose to 10 mg for the first 14 days and switched to the morning. After 14 days the dose is then increased to 20 mg. Taking in the morning. The first 6 weeks of use were not very nice. I had the following side effects, which were from today’s point of view but less serious than then: – Sleep and sleep disorders – Extreme sweating at night – Extreme sweating in sports – Extreme dreams – Body and muscle twitching – Headache – loss of appetite, so I first lost 4 pounds – total hopelessness and self-doubt – permanent increase anxiety and panic attacks – fear of the night, when it gets dark and no doctors’ offices are available – problems with being alone, because I was afraid something could happen to me or break me At the time, I was very grateful that my partner could even take a leave of absence and he helped me a lot and encouraged me to keep on taking the tablets because he was in a similar situation years ago. After 2-3 months, there was an improvement. I deliberately did not use benzodiazepines, even though I had them at home for emergencies. The conviction that I started to take the medication became bigger every day, because I realized how much better I was. The doubt from the beginning of the intake became less and less. The side effects have subsided more and more and it was always uphill. I was not so aggressive anymore, I checked myself, thought over the job and the private and put it to the test. Became more authentic and took myself more seriously. Have turned off my perfectionism, again made more endurance and strength training. Have things that I did not like and have been on the heart for a long time addressed and not further suppressed. Have begun a psychotherapy to work things up and change. Today after 9 months I feel really good. I can only recommend the following things to you! – Do not give up and hold on! – Move! Even though it’s hard to try endurance and / or weight training, otherwise you may gain weight over time – eat well and drink plenty of water! Avoid alcohol! – Gön

    Three years ago, I was diagnosed with a recurrent major major depression with panic disorder. My neurologist prescribed Citalopram 20mg for me at that time. Approximately one month later, the dose was increased to 40mg. The mood-enhancing effect was not long in coming. I noticed a significant increase in drive. Even the panic attacks were gradually less until they were finally completely gone. Even after the failure of a long-term relationship, the depression did not return. Now I’m feeling great again and a few months ago, after consulting with my neurologist, I tried to gradually eliminate the drug, but soon realized that the panic attacks were coming back. I will probably have to take this medicine for a lifetime, but since I get along with it very well, I have no problems with it. Side effects: The first 2 days I had diarrhea and about 4 weeks I had almost no appetite, so I lost about 5 kg in this time. The first few days I also noticed dry mouth and increased sweating, but this subsided relatively quickly. However, I can not find a loss of libido with me at all. Finally, I can really recommend this medicine because it has made my life worth living again.

    No more antidepressants! I recommend the TV post Dangerous lucky pills. I was told I would feel worse at first – but no one said that I would experience limitless panic, severe depression and previously never had suicidal thoughts. I could not leave the house, had massive agoraphobia, could barely walk with the dog, all things I had never known before the pills! In addition, the side effects such as nausea and urinary retention, I could no longer build pressure when urinating. I waited and waited for the supposedly occurring success. For weeks I could not sleep anymore, woke up every 10 minutes with panic and tachycardia and ended up in a psychiatric hospital! Where I was again stuffed with funds. I left the clinic voluntarily after 48 hours, completely discontinued their medication (which led to a new low point) and had a homeopathic treatment. It took me ten months to get out of the bad deep and today I still suffer from the bad memories, just like my husband.

    Citalopram for Depression

    After half a life, which was so difficult due to dark phases or really severe depression, I am very happy, thanks to Citalopram to have come into a positive stability. All action and feeling was always traversed by doubts and aberrations and a basic sensation of meaninglessness. Now I am positive, without feeling that I am a stranger. I am much closer and feel through the discharge in a position to develop my personality healthy and to live according to my very nature. I feel neither dull nor sedated. Only freed from black confounding factors, which were indeed my skeptical nature, but have messed up a lot by their (inherited) depressive, malignant proliferating nature. A high on the otherwise hated pharmaceutical industry. I will not sell it soon. I like to swallow this pill. Have problems with diarrhea, but I often have for months. Less appetite. Headache more often at first, now everything settles after a few months. Contracting less alcohol – but that’s just fine with me. In the initial phase there were also some manic days and again depressive break-ins, but that too has passed. Feel just clean, good and stable and yet sensitive, helpful and me accordingly. Absolute recommendation.

    Side effects: Diarrhea; Anorexia; Headache

    Citalopram for Borderline

    I got 20mg right away, and then it was extremely cranky and hibbelig, my pupils were permanently huge (so it was really no placebo effect). After a week, this has returned to normal, my mood was better, but then started other side effects: loss of appetite, weight loss, nervousness and tension, aggressiveness, major problems sleeping, hot flashes and sweating. After another 2 weeks, the effect has greatly decreased, my doctor has increased the dose, but I’m still very tired, driveless, sleep about 12 hours a day and have extreme hunger (despite the whole food but not too), my Mood is very bad, I have a very strong desire to hurt myself (I have not had that for a long time, especially not so much). Last but not least, citalopram beats me extremely on the libido, I want to sex more often from the head than without medication, but physically does nothing, and I can not come to orgasm anymore. I hope the higher dose starts working in a few days and lifts my mood, otherwise I do not do this with all the side effects anymore

    Side effects: Nervousness; Weight loss; Anorexia

    Citalopram for Psychosomatic disorder

    Taking citalopram because of bullying and bossing in the workplace. The trigger was a reminder – in conjunction with a legal warning shot – after 12 months of occupational, strained situation. Physical symptoms: Sleep disorders, difficulty concentrating, rapid heartbeat, headache, stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, anxiety, control, panic attacks, sweats, lack of strength and listlessness, faintness, the feeling of powerlessness and congestion, seconds of blackouts in everyday life (where I am, where wanted I go, how can I get there). Duration of administration: 5 months Dosage: 10 mg / 0-0-1 Physical side effects during ingestion: excessive sweating in the smallest activities (was found to be extremely stressful), lack of appetite, difficulty concentrating. Due to a severe bacterial infection of the middle ear, sinuses, pharynx, throat and frontal sinus with fever, I have forgotten to take citalopram for two weeks in the evening. In the third week, I noticed this fact, because I had the feeling, the cotton balls around me have lost. Clashes with my pubescent son were suddenly more violent, louder and more aggressive. Now after three weeks – in periods of aloneness – increased tearfulness added. Other physical symptoms: increased appetite, shallow sleep phases with wild dreams (with awakenings through loud calls and clearly audible monologues), doubts about the meaning of life, increase in flashbacks and thus the profound phases. Dizziness with nausea and nausea, noise in the ear and the sound of falling cherry stone bags with each (head) movement, fever, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, alternating freezing and sweating may also be due to the infection. After consultation with my doctor, the intake of citalopram is not included for the time being. Fortunately, for three months I have had a therapy place with a behavioral therapist, so that the treatment continues as such. After previous experience with Stangyl, I can recommend the use of Citalopram, if the physical symptoms significantly restrict the (professional) everyday life and in addition to the responsibility for the third person. Two colleagues have been taking citalopram for years and would like to continue doing so. Both are limited in their mental capacity and complain of sweats. However, they can not imagine ever getting along without the medical support.
