    Citalopram for Concentration disorders; Aggressiveness

    I take these pills every morning (20 mg, citalopram) My doctor prescribed this medicine for me when I said that I was getting mad at something very fast and d. important reason is that my concentration for learning went down. There was nothing left in my head (learning for exams and exams). I take d. Tbl. For a good 10 days. Unfortunately they do not bring anything at the moment! On the contrary, I get tired very fast and yawn all the time. Other side effects: tiredness, listlessness, constant yawning, dry mouth and muscle twitching on the legs. What should the tablets actually do? When does it come to a correct effect entry? Have my exam in a month, but if it goes on I’ll lose my hope ….

    Citalopram for Fibromyalgia; Depression

    I first got Citalopram for my depression about 18 months ago, at that time I did not know that I had fibromyalgia. After my diagnosis was confirmed my doctors told me that citalopram has a positive effect on fibromyalgia. Citalopram increases the serotonin levels in the body, which is in fibro. Patients very low. Now take Amineurin in the evening, so I had some difficulties at the beginning, now it works. I also take acemetacin, also for the fibro. I have been on inpatient treatment at the rheumatism center Herne for 14 days on all medication. Since then, the pain is a bit more bearable! I am happy to answer questions about the treatment in the rheumatism clinic

    Side effects: Increase in weight; Fatigue

    Citalopram for Migraine; Depression

    First use: 20mg daily for 4 weeks in the morning. Significant decrease in migraine, few side effects but no significant decrease in depression. Only noticeable side effect: loss of libido and ejaculation disorders. Then increase the dose to 40mg. Thereafter, migraine attacks remained almost completely absent, with a loss of libido and ejaculation disorders, as well as fatigue and still sleeping problems. These were expressed by the fact that I woke up almost every hour from 02:00 o’clock in the morning and partly fell asleep again.

    Citalopram for Migraine; Depression

    Have tried several migraine remedies, but Allegro contracted me the best. I just get tired of it sometimes, but it’s not always the same. Together with citalopram, which would have helped me very well, or another SSRI, however, it results in a dangerous combination with serious consequences. Therefore, I have immediately discontinued the citalopram and must be adjusted to another antidepressant.

    Side effects: Fatigue

    Citalopram for Pain (back); Nausea; Sleep disorders; Depression

    I have been taking Palladon Retard 8mg for 2 years as a permanent medication & amp; Palladium 2,6mg (up to 4 capsules, after consultation with my pain therapist) if needed. Not even in the first few weeks after the start of intake, very serious side effects occurred. The only are digestive problems (constipation) but I have very well with psyllium, whole grains, dried fruits and of course a lot of drink. The only thing that really bothers me is my libido loss. Since I also got a depression a year ago, my doctor gave me, after previous contact of a psychotherapist, the drug Citalopram. She prescribed me 1×1 in the morning and then I should dose myself higher if I realized that this dosage would not be enough for me. In the first weeks I was totally knocked out and tired and I had to force myself to get out of bed, but when this was over I started to feel really good. Today I take 2 Citalopram for several months in the morning and I can cope with it without any side effects. I have been very bad at Ein & amp; By sleeping. Wake up several times a night and can not fall asleep again was part of my everyday life. Accordingly, then was my mood, mood as well as my desire for my husband. A friend I complained of had the same problem and she took Doxipin 50mg. She gave me three tablets so I could try them over the WE. Then I took half a tablet on Friday evenings and I was able to fall asleep pretty well and (which joy) also sleep through. Saturday and Sunday the same. On Mondays I am then to my doctor and have told her about this weekend and she has then also written me a pack of 100 Doxipin 25mg. The 25mg lost their effect after over a year, so I took two and got to sleep again. At the next prescription my doctor told me about it and she also approved it. I also tolerate the doxipin without side effects. Because of my crooked spine, I have a lot of heavy and painful muscle tension, so I’ve been taking Tetrazepam (Musaril) every now and then for more than 30 years and I still have the best experience with it. Of course, on days when I take the tetrazepam I leave the doxipin off. Even with this drug, I have no side effects. Since I often had a headache as a child, wrote me my former HA Novalgin (Novaminsulvon) against it. To date, and now over 40 years old, I still manage very well and have not had any side effect in the years. MCP drops & amp; I always have MCP suppositories in the house. Should I feel sick, because I accidentally overdosed myself (and only then I feel sick or I have to spit) then at least I have help for an emergency. Personally, I am very good with all medicines and I am grateful that they are there for me. Without these meds my life would not be so worth living. I can only recommend it to anyone. Now I want to say something to my family doctor and to my pain therapist: They trust me and they know that I would never operate with the drug abuse. Dewegen also often leave the decision to me to dose higher. Both say again and again that I know my body the best and could assess and dewegen leave me a lot of free hand. I am very grateful to them. Thank you for reading this long and I hope I could help you a bit. Biggi

    Citalopram for Unrest

    For the first three weeks, I was always tired and feeling very bad, so I kept asking myself to stop. Then it started to get better and I was reborn after 4 to 6 weeks, because I finally could sleep again, was well balanced, could perform my activities with joy and as before, (a very long time ago), my imagination and desire unfold at the redesign (garden and house). I am celebrating my 80th birthday this year and am glad that I have found my way to the neurologist. I can not report strong side effects. With kind regards Waurich

    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)

    Citalopram for Fatigue; Burnout syndrome; Depression

    I would like to put my report on citalopram here, because I am u. a. because of many negative contributions and the known side effects have literally resisted to take this drug. Since I was feeling very bad sometimes, I could not get up to anything anymore and could not grasp clear, structured thoughts any more, so I decided to test it anyway (I was already feeling bad enough). I had yawns in the first three to four weeks and was pretty tired in the afternoon. (Ingestion: 5 days 5 mg, 5 days 10 mg and therefore 20 mg to date). I also sweated more than usual – but not significantly. Now I have been taking this medication for almost two months and I have to say that I feel a lot better. I do not feel any side effects anymore. I have my energy again. I can concentrate very well again and I enjoy many things. I feel fit and my thoughts are clearer. I am also much more relaxed as before.

    Side effects: Sweat; Fatigue

    Citalopram for Drive disorders

    Ingested in the evening, tablets of 40 mg, changing manufacturers (generic). Initially, only a short nausea, then for about 2 weeks excessive sweating, which, however, put down. Drive returned to normal after a few days, negative thoughts and sadness disappeared after about 3 to 5 weeks. Unfortunately, after about 3 months severe side effects set in, which did not disappear even with dose reduction from 40 to 20: Extreme daytime tiredness with permanent tears (as after sleeping pill), in addition to wide awake at night, severe persistent headache, which did not disappear even with paracetamol or Ibu. Therefore, drug spiked, was not a problem. 14 days after scaling, no side effects were present. A second therapy attempt about 18 months later failed, this time set the above-mentioned side effects again. Neurologist no longer visited, because he claimed that it was a drug with extremely low probability of side effects, if I had problems with this, then with all the others. Nevertheless, my conclusion: If offered by the doctor, definitely take it! It helps a lot and not everyone has to fight with such severe side effects!

    Side effects: Sweat; Headache; Nausea; Fatigue

    Oxygesic 200mg a day + Oxygesic acute each 10mg if needed and 40mg citalopram. I came to Oxygesic only after repeated Drug rotating, ie changing the drug group. Before morphine, Jurnista and Palladon, also in combination with Lyrica, or gabapentin, dexamethasone, Novalmin Tr. Constantly increasing need for Oxygesic to cope with the pain. Permanent fatigue, weight gain 20kg, hunger, constipation, erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, forgetfulness, decreased brain power, irritability Despite Movicol, the constipation is terrible. Once a week, the tissue tears into the anus and then bleeds. Hellish pain. The pain-relieving effect is good with Oxygesic, which is why I stayed there at the moment. Eventually a setting on L-polamidon will be made soon. The ever growing Oxygesic needs make my pain Dr. Concern. Unfortunately, I am retired very early and can drive (by Oxygesic) no car. Sport is no longer possible and the hobby is only very limited possible. The positive attitude to life is almost gone. Contacts tear off and every day the question why am I good for what else can I teach my children what to offer my wife?
