    Mirtazapine left me immediately after evening intake after 2 hours fall into a deep sleep, but I am very bothered by the strong daytime daze, from 15 to 30 mg was high doses. 2 kilo increased but I’m doing well. I barely But sleeping disorder was corrected. I have now got 10 mg of citalopram in the morning to lift the drowsiness of mirtazapine, which worked very well the last few days, again wacher.die fear was mirtazapine has become less so, as soon as a panicatake has approached it has not come to an outbreak. Only a little heartbeat was over soon. By the beginning of citalopram until now as side effect, slight restlessness, again somewhat anxious, however the doctor meant that would be the initial side effects .. I am strong and consider it .. unpleasant for anxious patients because the fear rises again something. well wait .. is hip .. have more drive again, and partly good mood, I feel better .. hold out just takes his time until the body has got used to it …

    Citalopram for Eating disorder; Mood swings; Depression

    Have had childhood depression and strong mood swings, sometimes severe eating disorders (bulimia). For two years, I have been taking citalopram (first 20 mg, then 40 mg) and get along very well. The first 8 days after the start of treatment were very unpleasant: dizziness, nausea, extreme headache, tiredness. After about 8 days, the antidrug effect started and the side effects disappeared for the most part. What remains is tiredness (during the day) with simultaneous sleep disturbances (in the evening) and a complete loss of libido. Both side effects are tolerable for me and the benefit outweighs quite clearly (especially as sleep disorders and loss of libido for me would also be present in depression). The special advantage of the drug is in my eyes the reduction of mood swings with which at the same time the tendency to binge eating was reduced. Of weight gain I can report absolutely nothing (that would have been for me an immediate Absetzkriterium), on the contrary, in my opinion, the drug reduces the appetite. Overall, I can recommend Citalopram very much, but you should pay attention to two things in my opinion: take the drug in the morning in any case (otherwise strong sleep disorders), Caution with alcohol (one tolerates much less)

Prescribed citalopram and psychotherapy. The first few days of dizziness and somehow weird, everything was strange, different than usual. But that has given after 3-4 days and now I am absolutely no side effect. Feeling much better, nausea has disappeared, on the whole I feel great. Have accepted, can participate in the normal life again. I am very satisfied with Citalopram, can not say anything negative. Nevertheless, of course I want to try to sell the drug again.

    Citalopram for Psychological instability; Depression

    In the first 5-8 days – dosage 20 mg. changing side effects (nausea, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, dry mouth, heavy sweating, inner restlessness). Then slight but steady improvement. After dose adjustment to 40 mg. renewed and increased side effects as above. After 14 days, most of them, fortunately, are so flattened that they can live with it. ATTENTION: For the male co-patients, the sexual desire is still very present but unfortunately not exercisable = & gt; lack of potency, erection = zero (even with the help of manual stimulation only very short), orgasm very weak. Unfortunately and a great pity for us guys !!.

    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

    Hello I’m taking citalopram since less than a year and I’m doing a lot better with it. The first 2 to 3 days were pretty heavy symptoms, very strange feeling in the head, sweating, dizziness. After 2 days we went better and after about 2 weeks I went really class. I live much better with it than before. Today I only have side effects from now on and sleep disorders and gastrointestinal problems, but everything not so tragic. Highly recommended if you suffer from anxiety or panic. After 2-3 months I have increased to 20 because the effect has partly subsided. After the increase, however, I had no side effects more than the first time.

    Citalopram was given to me in the rehab and in the beginning the side effects were so bad that I wanted to discontinue it after 3 days. But I had hope that it still strikes and it did so a little bit after all. What’s left over, now and then dizziness, dry mouth and falling asleep. But to fall asleep I take valerian in addition and then it works quite well.

    Citalopram for Sleep disorders; Depression

    I was diagnosed with depression with emotional instability and impulsivity at the beginning of the year. The diagnosis of depression was not new, including ih already suffered in 2010/2011; the rest is / was new. In addition to depression, I suffer from sleep disorders and examination phobia. Since then, I take 15 mg of citalopram every morning and have no side effects from this medication. It helps me with the depression as well as my phobia. I’m not sure about the phobia yet, because I have no exam situations at the moment. Things look different with the medications that help me with insomnia. First I got Seroquel 75 mg, at night. Here I had only side effects … Dizziness (especially in the morning), headaches, exciting breasts, weight gain, I have not come out of bed and was tired all day. Then I tried 50 mg Seroquel Retard with the hope it will get better. No, the side effects remained. Now I have mirtazapine for some days, first 7.5 mg. Mirtazapine is intended to support citalopram, as well as help with sleep disorders and examination phobia. Unfortunately, my weight continues to rise. I hope my weight levels up again, because so slowly the weight gain is the most depressing! If nothing changes until the next visit to the doctor, I have to talk to my psychiatrist again urgently. I would just like to take the citalopram and if need be raise it.

    Citalopram for Depression

    I suffered from severe generalized anxiety disorder and depression for more than 4 years, but did not dare to take psychotropic drugs and did not treat myself. A self-experiment with St. John’s wort (Jarsin) was unsuccessful. Finally, when I was about to commit suicide, I thought, now it does not matter, I’m trying – I went to a neurologist who prescribed Pram (citalopram) for me. I should start with 10mg and increase to 20mg after 2 weeks. Overcautious as I am, I preferred to start with 5mg (a quarter tablet), increase to 10mg after 2 weeks, and finally to 20mg after 3 or 4 weeks. This medicine has given me back my life! (But that has its price, and I’m not talking about money here …) After just a week with 5mg, I realized that something is changing. There were always small moments in which I felt better, and these moments became more and more frequent and longer. After a total of 3 weeks, two of them with 5mg and one with 10mg I was as newborn. I was the human being once again, many years ago. No fears, no depression, I just felt good, was able to live again and enjoy the beautiful things of everyday life. Although it went downhill a bit, but when I finally increased to 20mg, I remained stable. I’ve been taking Citalopram for almost exactly 5 years now, and have not had any serious and long-term mental health problems since as long as I took the pills (for the big one, see below). Side effects: After starting the intake and after each dose increase for about 1 week very severe headache, an unpleasant pressure on the chest, for about 2-3 weeks temporarily nausea and moderate dizziness. All of these side effects disappeared completely after 3-4 weeks at the latest. However, a very unpleasant side effect persisted – massive sexual disturbances to almost total impotence. Although an erection usually comes about, but then often passes along with the desire, the climax is rarely and then after a very long, sometimes hours of work, and even that is more of a relief that it is finally over. Overall, sex has nothing more pleasant and satisfying anymore. My weight has not changed significantly by taking the drug. Another very significant side effect is the so-called withdrawal symptoms, as they are called euphemism, to avoid such unpleasant words as dependence or addiction. The fact is, I am very dependent on Citalopram, and I can not get rid of it. I have now 4 reduction attempts from 20 to 10mg behind me, all have failed, a complete discontinuation is not to be dreamed. Lastly, I endured 4 agonizing months with 10mg, until I was finally completely viable at the end and thus practically voided the fourth attempt for failure and threw another 20mg one morning. 10 hours later, all complaints were blown away. It is NOT a recurrence of the original disease, as is often claimed. The complaints are predominantly physical in nature and differ in some cases considerably from those against which I got the drug at that time. The symptoms in reduction (I have tried it even with 15 instead of 20mg, did not work) is always in the same pattern: -2-3 days after the dose reduction nervousness and restlessness, but also a slight euphoria, overall good mood and Urge to move – After 1-2 weeks of anxiety comparable to those before taking, confusion and standing next to me, can no longer clearly think – After a total of 3-4 weeks of improvement, I’m fine for a few weeks, and I almost believe it A few weeks later, about 8 weeks after the dose reduction, gradual onset of physical symptoms reminiscent of a cold or flu: headache, cold feeling (runny nose with burning sensation in the nose, possibly slight sore throat, fatigue … ) is best compared to the day before a cold breaks out, only that the suspected cold never comes and the short-before-the-flu condition stops t -These complaints do not stop and increase over the following weeks. At some point I feel as if I have a fever of 40 degrees, my head almost bursts, I am seriously ill and can hardly get out of the apartment; every minute movement or physical activity is a terrible ordeal, I am practically no longer viable. Every examination at the doctor gives no result, I am physically healthy. No matter how long I try to endure this condition, it does not get any better, but gets worse every day. Longer a

    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 Depression

    First to me, I’m 28 years old and seriously Depressed because I have a lot of problems with me! So far, my life has always been very different, and often associated with disappointment and anger. If you have very severe depression then medication does not help much! Medication I have taken before: Seroxat (paroxetine) for about 8 years / hardly effect / EXCEPTION severe violent side effect after forgetting to take after the first day. Saroten (Amytriptilin) about 1 year / Useless has brought no effect at all had only strong constipation and tachycardia (rapid heart rate) as a side effect Now the effect, fears, thoughts and worries are after a while of taking not so close to me, me I have the impression that Citalopram pushes them further away from me because otherwise I always think deeply about my concerns and reflect on the day for me after my experiences. Citalopram is not mood-enhancing with me but at least never a feeling high as heaven high Jubilzend and peace joy pancakes as with Citalopram remains at least realistic, however, I had in the evening times an enormously over exaggerated euphoric luck feeling that is very rare! Citalopram is said to be an increase in drive, with me the opposite is the case I feel tired in the course of the day dogs and fatigue, especially at work start temporarily strong attacks of fatigue. I lay down in my bed every day after work from about 4:00 pm and then, even though I have been resting for two or more hours, I would like to rest all day, even light household chores like tidying up or laundry make is already a challenge, I can do almost nothing! I always take the drug in the morning at first it was 60 mg now I am currently taking 40 mg I would like to get away from the drug in the long run because it offers more disadvantages than benefits for me. The time during the reduction from 60 to 40 mg was hell I had not expected such strong side effects in my worst dreams I was irritated, disoriented, haphazard, confused and I interpreted everything that was brought to me as an attack my workmate was opposite me as well very irritable and moody. If you forget the intake after a few days you feel very bad, you get more irritated and you have a kind of electric shocks that go through the body (I already knew of Seroxat because it was even more violent) Side effects for me with this drug – occasional cardiac arrhythmias. – Faster heart rate (tachycardia) since the beginning of ingestion. – Dry mouth. – Now and then cravings. – High fatigue potential (Only in the evening I can sleep well for it) – You often feel the role – Confusion – No plan – Dizziness – Irritability – Aggressiveness – Anxiety So overall I can not recommend it unless you want to sleep very well at night you are really good with the drug, but in all other respects it fails in my opinion!
