    Citalopram for Eating disorder; Depression

    I took citalopram for one and a half years, at first only 10 mg, but the dose was increased up to 40 mg. On the one hand it helped me a lot against the depression, on the other hand a tolerance developed after a short time. In addition, I was often sick after taking the drug. Still, they started working fast and were very nice, but after weaning I realized that I feel very different. Well, in retrospect, I’m not really excited about it.

    Side effects: Nausea

    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)
