    Citalopram for Bipolar disorder; Depression

    Since I take now 15mg Cipralex instead of 40mg Citalopram now 3 months, I can only confirm that Cipralex actually works better. Side effects with citalopram: nevertheless depression (recurring), visual disturbances after ingestion, sweating, weight gain, massive restlessness. These NW have improved considerably. It is therefore in my experience really advisable to change. The KK paid Cipralex. I have been without depression for a long time and that makes life easier and more liveable. NW at Cipralex: the first 3-4 weeks tired, otherwise I can not report anything negative about Cipralex.

    Citalopram for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    Most of the time I was sick during the familiarization phase and I was very tired. Then citalopram (30mg) finally unfolded its effect (after about 6 weeks) and my fears were gone, I had more drive and life again made sense. For 12 years, that was the case and now I am slowly dropping off. By now at 5mg, the dizziness still does not stop, from time to time I see flashes and sleep very badly. It’s like having one skin layer less. I am more sensitive and unbalanced. I want to get it under control … I needed the tablet, it helped, but now I want to be myself again – without citalopram.

    Side effects: Blurred vision; Dizziness

    Citalopram for Depression

    The worst thing I ever got. I was miserable. Nausea, extremely strong dizziness, hearing problems, blurred vision, very tired, everything tasted different, yes sums forgot: I had no more eroticism, because I was suddenly unable to orgasm. Just before I came, the good feeling disappeared suddenly. That was a real happiness slower.

    Citalopram for Burnout syndrome

    strong sedative effect, as if stunned. Neither hunger nor thirst, blood pressure drop. Slowdown of the reflexes, could no longer drive a car, Tunnelblick. Muscle weakness. Remaining damage: Deteriorated ability to accommodate the eye muscles, I am now very far-sighted and have problems to focus from near to far vision. Altered reaction to alcohol: no more amounging but immediately tiredness. Serotonin deficiency was probably misdiagnosis.

    Citalopram for Depression

    Am 56 years old and suffering from a malignant melanoma of depressive moods and anxiety disorders. First, I took 10 mg of citalopram in the morning. Side effects such as dry mouth, tiredness and word finding disorders are, except for dry mouth, not resolved after four months. Added to this was then after increased dose to 20mg / day weight gain, massive inner restlessness, eye flare and sexual disorders (absence of ejaculation), little sexual interest. Through a personal jogging program, however, I can narrow the weight gain, although in the evening there is an increased feeling of hunger for sweets. The most uncomfortable, however, is the constant leaden fatigue, although I do not know how to ever pursue a regular working day. Will probably sneak the drug out and then stop.

    Citalopram for Depression

    I already knew that this drug could cause serious side effects, especially at first. Therefore, I had already stopped to dizziness and concentration disorders, which I already knew from two previous \ ‘experiments \’ with other antidepressants. For me, however, seems to be a general incompatibility for all this stuff. However, this time I wanted to endure it for more than 2 weeks – which was a big mistake because the side effects did not diminish, it just got worse and after two months my doctor recommended me to increase the dose or a stronger supplement (For a drug therapy he considered necessary \ ‘to take), I dropped the stuff without further ado. Within 2 weeks I felt much better. The bad thing about the stuff is that with symptoms that were already there, you can only guess that they were strengthened by the ingestion. In my case, these were mainly panic attacks and thoughts of suicide, which I have never experienced before on this scale and which also normalized shortly after stopping in the \ ‘mysterious \’ way. My side effects were: dry mouth, blurred vision, speech problems, nausea, drowsiness, muscle twitching, memory and concentration disorders, compulsive suicidal thoughts and ideas, paranoid psychotic states (never before and after), panic attacks In addition, I had about the third intake Suddenly feeling like something presses on my neck. After a little back and forth, it was found in a gastroscopy that I have a reflux oesophagitis. In combination with the dry mouth, which (in my opinion, too) was caused by citalopram, the further intake was simply no longer justifiable; My doctor had now prescribed a drug for me and the combination of the two has finally flattened me. Incidentally, the reflux disease has not made itself noticeable since weaning. My concern is to specifically warn against this type of medication. The stuff was just character deforming for me. I did not recognize myself under his influence. It was deeply scary. Before you take something, you should inform yourself urgently. Especially about alternatives you should think. There are studies that demonstrate the superiority of psychotherapy over drug treatment. Furthermore, there was a fairly large-scale study in England, which showed that various antidepressants do not work better than a placebo. Keep in mind the risk you take, that just taking a medicine may just fool you, that your condition has improved. All the best from me. A psychology student

    Citalopram for Burnout syndrome

    After burnout, several doctors have recommended taking this medication. After 10 mg in the first week and no positive or negative effects, I have on the advice of doctors, the dose increased to 20 mg. On the first night after increasing the dose I woke up at night, soaked in sweat, blurred vision, dizziness and panic attacks. The worst thing was a numbness in the head. The next morning I went to the doctor completely dissolute, but the only thing succinctly: As long as you do not jump out of the window take this nice on. I immediately changed the doctor but both my psycholgin and the new doctor said I should continue to take the drug. Unfortunately, the side effects became worse every day, I became more and more forgetful, severe dizziness, blurred vision, headache, loss of control led to great despair. Since then, my sleep has not been the same as before, often awake. When I woke up after 6 weeks in the morning and my left eyelid opened only 20%, I dropped off the medication against the advice of the doctors. My eyelid is working normally again, but the other side effects unfortunately still exist today (several months after weaning). After my experiences, I can only warn against this drug.

    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
