    Hello, I have been prescribed citalopram for depression about 4 months ago. For idling between therapy and waiting time. The early days so the first few days seemed. The drug mood-brightening, but I regularly had nightmares and had hot hungry attacks and my mouth was constantly dry. After just over a week, the depression came back, my doctor said the drugs needed their time to work and increased the dose, my cravings attacks remained with the time I was irritated and became aggressive, completely unawakened and Depressed over time came also claustrophobia and Mood swings I had no joy in things that I otherwise enjoyed, was indifferent and completely absent. In the later stages of the drug increase suicidal thoughts After discontinuing the drug, I got anxiety and still can not concentrate.

    Citalopram for Post-traumatic stress disorder; Depression

    Citalopram was the first antidepressant prescribed with 10mg, later increased to 20mg. The antidepressive effect was completely absent, but I had in the first 3 weeks terrible circulatory problems, restlessness and anxiety and anxiety, which I never had before. It is probably a drug to which many responses and that is usually tolerated quite well, so I recommend anyway to try it further. I also have to say that mirtazapine was taken in at the same time, which of course could also be involved in the initial side effects.

    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

    Because of chronic hepatitis C, which existed for about 12 years, I took peginterferon and Rebetol for 6 months. The side effects were numerous and very very debilitating. However, I would like to emphasize first that the Rosskur was successful, and my quality of life has increased significantly compared to before therapy !!! The side effects started harmless, with fever, fatigue, itching, constant urination, Hautiritationen, herpes, nightmares, then began after about 2 months sleep, stomach pain, anemia, weakness, shortness of breath, diffuse discomfort, mood lability, severe hair loss, and eventually increased in a moderate depression with very strong inner restlessness, anxiety, Heulattaken, aggressiveness, and complete powerlessness. Since I was a heroin addict 12 years ago, and my thoughts were getting blacker, to relapse thoughts and destructive fantasies, I wrestled with citalopram. Here came NW as strong tiredness, fatigue, flatulence, sensory disturbances in the feet, indifferent emotional state added. After discontinuation, which occurred gradually (by citalopram), marked withdrawal problems such as insomnia through restless legs and sweating. The restless legs stayed about 2 months with slow weakness. Then, thank God, it was over. The side effects of peginterferon and ribavirin go away relatively quickly. May recommend all medications conditionally. For me it was good in the end, for some others because of the severity of the depression sometimes fatal. Good is definitely a greater distance to the addiction past and a reasonably stable social network that I did not have. But in any case, a doctor who takes the time to listen to the NW and as with me, in psych. NW sensitive but reacts quickly.
