  1. Stephanie C. Lawson says:
    4.5 rating

    In the first three weeks, I got the original drug from my doctor as a sample and tolerated this well. Except for occasional hot flashes, I had no side effects, I was mentally better. Then I got a prescription and my health insurance did not want to pay for the original medicine and so I got a generic. After a week it started: high blood pressure, constant headaches and body aches. Now after a total of seven weeks it is not better, the side effects are intolerable and I will discontinue the drug.

    Citalopram for Dizziness; A headache; High blood pressure

    After 4 days with 2 tablets a day, I suddenly became very hot in the head and body in the evening and my blood pressure rose very high. The next morning I did not take any first and while driving I thought, I faint. Blood pressure over 200 (otherwise rather low). From then on, I did not take these pills and got opipramol, which I tolerate well so far.
