    Citalopram for Burnout syndrome

    I was diagnosed with burnout syndrome 4 weeks ago, so I’m currently incapacitated for work. My doctor first prescribed venlafaxine for me. Unfortunately, I did not realize how much mg of the active ingredient was in a table, but I assume that it was the smallest dosage form. I took a pill around 11am and 20 minutes later my skin began to tingle. This tingling increased in the next few hours and lasted for about 36 hours until the late evening of the next day. I was very nervous all day, could not sleep easily the first night, and woke up several times during the night. I also felt like my tongue was swelling about an hour after taking it. It was not so bad that I was afraid to suffocate, but very uncomfortable. I reported these symptoms to my doctor the next day, after which she prescribed citalopram (10 mg). I should take half a tablet (ie 5 mg) daily in the first week, then increase to 10 mg. I am now at 20 mg per day and should stay on this dose. Of side effects I notice only a remarkably strong need for sleep. I sleep between 9 and 10 hours in the night and take another 1-2 hour nap in the afternoon. So I get around 10 to 11 hours of sleep a day. I do not notice any other side effects. But I can not say that the desired effects (drive increase and improvement of mood) are particularly striking.

    Citalopram for Concentration disorders; Anxiety disorders

    I started with 10mg citalopram and increased the dose every 7 days until I was at 40mg. I did not notice anything about the drug neither changing anything nor anything else. Although you should not stop taking citalopram overnight, I still did it after 3 months. I had the smarties effect, zero effect zero settling
