    Citalopram for Depression

    I write down my experiences and hope that I can help some with it. First of all, it is important to realize that AD affects everyone differently and causes other side effects. In addition, you have to show endurance, because the side effects are after about 10 days or disappear completely. In addition, the full effect unfolds only after several weeks. I took Citalopram (10mg) at the age of 17 because of my anxiety and panic disorder. Citaporam is often prescribed for the disease and also works very well. At the beginning you are often dizzy, dizzy and bad. I also had vision problems and concentration problems. However, these continue to decline after about a week. The fear only worsens, but then it is much better … so hold out. I dropped them off at 19 because I felt better. In addition, I had the feeling that Citalopram makes emotionless. And I had persistent lipid loss. That was really annoying. My fears and Panikatakken were gone and also my depersonalization (feelings of disgust). For various personal reasons, I fell into a deep hole at 21 with again anus and panic as well as moderate depression. Then I got Cipralex. My psychiatrist said it would be better tolerated than citalopram. I am very satisfied with Cipralex. I still feel very natural and not so emotionless. At the beginning, I had mild problems with the side effects, e.g. Dizziness. Only the dream change has remained and sometimes I am a bit dazed in the morning, but otherwise the compatibility is really good and as long as I have no stress and the effect. Citalopram helped me better when it came to stress, but it may also be because the disease was not that bad back then. In general, Cipralex and Citalopram are very driving-driven, which is great. My anxiety and panic disorders are much much weaker. Only depression is even stronger. In the evenings it sometimes bothers you that you can not fall asleep. Accordingly, I am often exhausted the next day. On the other hand, I took mirtazipin. Although I sleep better with it, but it does not bring much more and it is a total fattening with me. 2 months ago I weighed 53 kg and now I weigh 60 kg. And it just does not stop, although I do sports and have already changed my diet. Today was back at the doctor and he said I should then rather times with Doxepin (in addition to Cipralex) verschuschen. Hope it shows good effect and that I am not exhausted that fast (due to depression). In the meantime, I also took imipramine. I did not like that at all. I had a low blood pressure all the time, so I was able to handle it and I was able to sleep at 6 o’clock in the evening and was generally exhausted. I then sold it again after about 4 months. Conclusion: My experience: Citalopram and Cipralex thumbs up, Mirtazipin rather mediocre, Imipramine thumbs down I hope I could help some and are also available for questions. One thing is still important to me. AD are not as bad as it is often said. You can make life a lot more worth living again. It’s really worth it. Once you have found the right medi, which requires a little money, you can enjoy life more again. Wish you all the best, Corinna
