    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 Fatigue

    Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) cause sexual dysfunction in many people when taken. This is well known and is also in the leaflet. However, only very few people know about it and what is nowhere being warned: the sexual disorders do not disappear in some people even after the SSRI has been discontinued. In addition to SSRI, at least SNRI (selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor) and possibly SSRE (selective serotonin reuptake enhancer [Stablon]) can cause permanent sexual dysfunction. This medication damage is called PSSD (Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction). The following symptoms are typical of PSSD (they may not all be present together, but many of them are common): – decreased or absent libido – impotence or reduced vaginal moisturization – difficulty causing or maintaining an erection or sexual arousal – persistent genital arousal disorder despite lack of sexual excitement – weak, delayed or missing orgasm (anorgasmia) – orgasm is less or not at all satisfactory (ejaculatory anhedonia) – premature orgasm – decreased sensitivity of the penis, vagina or clitoris – genital sensory dustiness – no or diminished response to sexual stimuli reduced sperm volume – chronic erection (priapism) PSSD can last weeks, months, years and more after discontinuation of SSRI. The exact cause of PSSD is not yet definitely known. At the moment, however, there are many indications that SSRIs permanently alter the brain at the genetic level (including the serotonin receptors). In rodents, at least, this defect is proven to be inherited. It can be assumed that it behaves the same in humans. There is a real risk that PSSD will be transmitted to the children. How often PSSD occurs is also not determined. However, these are definitely not absolute isolated cases; There are simply too many PSSD sufferers. Fortunately, only a minority seems to be affected. The vast majority of doctors do not know about PSSD. As a rule, it is simply assumed that the sexual disorders are of a psychotic nature. This is partly true, but not with PSSD – a neurological problem. In the meantime, the existence of PSSD has been recognized in research. There are numerous scientific studies demonstrating PSSD (see the wiki article). Unfortunately, this knowledge does not penetrate, or too slowly to the public. You normally only learn from PSSD when it’s already too late. In addition to further research, it is therefore urgently necessary to educate people about PSSD. Currently, there are no known therapies / remedies that fix PSSD. After all, some sufferers recover over time by themselves and others help certain substances (vitamins, amino acids, herbs). In addition, experiments with rodents are underway that give cause for cautious optimism. It’s not about scare or antidepressant bashing, but about people making an informed decision when it comes to SSRI & amp; co. goes. And PSSD is just a possible consequential damage. It is undisputed that the knowledge of PSSD can make people very difficult to weigh up; but the reality can not be changed. To be aware of our own responsibility as a patient, we need to know what we are considering. We recently founded a German-speaking self-help group for PSSD sufferers. We would be delighted if people who had sexual problems following the discontinuation of antidepressants would join. So we can exchange ideas and search together for solutions. The site is still in its infancy. But we plan to add some documents bit by bit. Most of all, we hope for new members to work together. Our suggestions to all those who would like to do something in terms of PSSD: – Doctors (especially psychiatrists and neurologists) address the problem, preferably by submitting the wiki article, which refers to specialist literature. – If you know someone who is or might be affected by PSSD: Please alert to PSSD. – If you suffer from PSSD yourself, you may also report it to the drug authorities. Attention! Please do not stop treatment with SSRI due to this post! If at all, this should always be discussed with the attending specialist and, if necessary, be slow. Incidentally, could a

    Citalopram for Dizziness; Fatigue

    Initially, I only took citalopram to combat the dizziness and constant fatigue associated with multiple sclerosis. In the beginning, it pulled me down a lot and made me even more tired; the dizziness got a little better over time. Later, PekaMerz came along, and this combination was recommended to me by a doctor in multiple sclerosis. I am very stunned. Have since again new joy of life. The dizziness is only there in stressful situations, the fatigue hardly affects me and I can work again. Before I had to sleep 16 hours and was still tired and tired. Today, I get well with 10-12 hours of sleep throughout the day. My libido was only initially impaired, meanwhile I have (except for mild acne) no side effects. I’ve gained about 12 kilos, but they have been stable for about half a year.

    Citalopram for Fatigue; Borderline; Depression

    I was put on citalopram 40mg a few weeks ago during my inpatient stay in a psychiatric ward. a whole in the morning, at lunch then another half. The side effects were very unpleasant for me at the beginning: -Very sweaty hands -unacceptable taste in the mouth -Fatigue -Studious yawning -Loss of sexual pleasure -Orgasmus disorders (even more) -Orientierungsstörungen after waking up -My testicles have shrunk (not forever, but they were smaller for a while) I used to take Cipralex for a while, to which I reacted immediately and without any side effects. Citalopram has caused a lot of side effects on me, as I can see, but I can say that all these side effects have completely disappeared within the first two weeks. Continuing tuen still my orgasm disorders, I sometimes need despite a lot of excitement quite a long time until I come to the climax. I hope that will change soon. On the whole, however, I am very satisfied with this drug. Since then, my depression has completely disappeared and I can master my everyday life without any problems. 🙂
