    Citalopram for Anxiety disorders

    I take citalopram for about 6 months because of acute anxiety attacks (panic), in the morning after breakfast. Acting began the drug after about 7 days, I was calmer and could deal better with the onset of panic. Accompanying I do a psychotherapy. The panic cases I have now under control and sneak the Medikamt for a week. Side effects since about the 3rd day: The most unpleasant: absolute loss of libido, although I have rarely sexual thoughts, but can no longer come to orgasm and will no longer wet – I had no other problems. In addition, my usually regular period is disturbed and there are inter-bleedings. Also not nice: I’ve gained 5 kg with the same eating habits in the last four months and am constantly tired. Now that the therapy has taken effect, I hope that after stopping the side effects go back quickly.

    Citalopram for Anxiety disorders; Depression

    Hello, since I am suffering from an anxiety disorder (agoraphobia) since my youth (in my opinion, even a generalized disorder), which (all probably the older owed) now led to depression and obsessive thoughts, I was from the doctor about 2 years ago Citalopram 20 mg prescribed. The first weeks were really tough and the side effects gave everything. After getting used to it, I felt much better and at the same time I could start psychotherapy. For very severe side effects, I took a small dose of Tavor. This helped. Over time, it has been found that despite the medication, I have recurring relapses (with and without reason). Therefore, the dose was increased to 30. I took this dose for 1 year, which was not successful. The thrusts are still there. Since I am of the opinion that the Citalopram almost does not work anymore, I have started in consultation with the therapist and doctor, citalopram slowly discontinued. I am back to 20 mg. As a withdrawal I see my current mental (anxiety, no motivation) and physical problems (stomach, sweat …). Whether I then get a new drug and try out I do not know yet. Currently I am trying the alternative hypnosis. I have already achieved success in agoraphobia. In addition, my dose of L-thyroxine (due to Hashimoto) was increased. I also hope for an improvement from this.

    Side effects: Palpitations; Unrest; Nausea

    Citalopram for Anxiety disorders

    Due to many years of agoraphobia, anxiety disorders and depression my family doctor has prescribed the antidepressant Citalopram 20mg. At first I was very afraid of side effects, although I was assured by her that the drug was very well tolerated. I then went through to take it. For the first two weeks, my symptoms got worse. I was very tired and tired, had many panic attacks, I was dizzy and sick. After that, however, a drive-increasing effect began. I was able to work for months for the first time and do some sports. After about 4 weeks Citalopram has reached its full potential with me. I felt much better, more motivated and clearer in my head than all those years without medication. Meanwhile, I have the courage, the motivation and the drive to make a therapy and to confront my fears. What I have to complain, however, is that since I take the drug I feel much less hungry and sometimes all day eating nothing. But Citalopram helps me a lot and I would recommend it! Great effect.

    Citalopram for Anxiety disorders

    Hello, I take Citalopram 20 mg for about 6 weeks. At first it was still very difficult, but after the certain time the two weeks I was fine. but there were days when I sometimes had to take 20mg of pipamperone because I had a weird feeling. But suddenly I did not get the feeling of being in my own body, a funny look came along and, strangely enough, the fear always came only in the car. I also have itching occasionally, shaking hands and feeling unwell. For 2 days my dose was increased to 30mg I have to say now on the second day I’m really not so plump from time to time and so the feelings return to fear and extreme hands tremble, constantly running to the bathroom. In the morning when I get up I feel great then I take DSS drug and immediately begins this funny look.

    Citalopram for Anxiety disorders

    hmmm …. So I’ll try my experience report here. In short: until 2 months ago, I was actually symptom-free regarding panic attacks and the anxiety disorder. Before that I had an endless suffering, lasted about 8-10 months. I had believed in panic attacks, anxiety disorders and, above all, physical complaints of the most disgusting kind. Physical problems: panic attacks out of the blue, tachycardia, high blood pressure of the very finest, tinnitus, sweating, stomach and intestinal complaints, dizziness etc etc etc. I was sometimes no longer possible to leave the house. Hiring in the supermarket at the box office was accompanied by panic attacks (tachycardia, cold and heat shower etc) so that I waited some minutes until no queue was there to be processed immediately and could end my purchase. Subway or train ride were also the pure horror !!! Also an accumulation of crowds were unbearable for me. I was first treated with opipramol 150 mg, initially the effect was given (although minimal) but it brought relief. citalopram 30 mg was given to me as the drug stopped producing the desired results. I got better quickly, I took the medication conscientiously and rarely had to struggle with physical symptoms. Side effects were with me especially dry mouth and a piss in the ears, at the moment I can not remember. After about 5 months, I had then dropped off the citalopram after consultation with my family doctor. That’s about 10 months ago. I was still fine, I could go back to work. A few weeks ago it started again, I got panic attacks while driving and in other situations. I am almost back in my time of suffering. So I thought: the solution is to start with the drug again. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ARE YOU SERIOUS WHEN YOU SAY THAT! The side effects are quite strong this time. Headache, dry mouth, tinitus, paleness, frequent urination, light dizziness, extreme trembling at times, exhaustion, inactivity, etc And even though I started with just 10 mg. My tip: who it helps should take it in any case, it had helped me the first time also great. ! BUT !: it only relieves the symptoms, not the actual causes! necessarily consult with a psychologist for the purpose of psychotherapy or the like, because at some point, the effect will fizzle and the whole crap comes back. Would be glad if a few people would report to the exchange of experience of panic attacks, anxiety disorder to help us in a hurry (tips, etc.) under: [email protected] small tip yet: yes no baldriantropfen or johannesut take products at the same time, that brought me in connection with citalopram the day of the horror, since that does not tolerate each other. I still had panic attacks and holes. ALL THE BEST

    Side effects: Tinnitus; Mouth dryness

    Citalopram for Anxiety disorders

    I was suffering from burnout syndrome in 2007. My fear had so caught me that I was no longer able to leave the house let alone that I could be alone at home. I got my citalopram from my neurologist, which was slowly increased in 5 mg steps. At first I had strong restlessness, but this is normal to evaluate because it is a drive-enhancing drug. The feeling disappears but the body must first adjust to it. I arrived at 25 mg and did not have to take more. Behavioral therapy is the right therapy which should be done in order to relive the fears. I also got occupational therapy at the beginning of the illness, but in the sense that someone came to my home to desensitize me first. Although I have also gained a good 12 kg but that is more water retention because the metabolism is just a bit sluggish, but you should not blame the drug right now but look if it could not just be because you come to rest and maybe just easy not as much movement as before. I would say that’s the reason for me. I was always annoyed about the weight gain, but now no more than at some point you put the drug off again and then the body gives back the kilos by itself. You do not have to gain additional stress by gaining weight but should be aware that it is so much better. AND– that it will be fine

    Citalopram for Anxiety disorders

    Hello dear ones .. I am new here: -) …. I hope I find people here with whom I can talk about my medication !! Well then to me, I’ve been dealing with panic attacks for 5 years now. Have now taken 3 years the drug Cymbalta 60 mg, and have always come with it well! But unfortunately, my mother got the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in December 2012: – (… the Cymbalta has not worked properly since! For almost 4 weeks I get the drug Citralopram 20 mg … the initial side effects I knew, and I have to say because of that … what but for a week is that I could only sleep during the day and am bright at night! Have talked to my psychiatrist about it yesterday, and he said I should take it in the evening instead of morning …. I made that the first time yesterday .. and promptly had a panickattack at night … maybe I have had a bad dream. Today I feel strange all day from the head and have to do with unrest. Maybe someone has I also know that I have to hold out and I’ll do it! Lg

    Citalopram for Concentration disorders; Anxiety disorders

    I started with 10mg citalopram and increased the dose every 7 days until I was at 40mg. I did not notice anything about the drug neither changing anything nor anything else. Although you should not stop taking citalopram overnight, I still did it after 3 months. I had the smarties effect, zero effect zero settling
