    Citalopram for Anxiety disorders

    Hello, I take Citalopram 20 mg for about 6 weeks. At first it was still very difficult, but after the certain time the two weeks I was fine. but there were days when I sometimes had to take 20mg of pipamperone because I had a weird feeling. But suddenly I did not get the feeling of being in my own body, a funny look came along and, strangely enough, the fear always came only in the car. I also have itching occasionally, shaking hands and feeling unwell. For 2 days my dose was increased to 30mg I have to say now on the second day I’m really not so plump from time to time and so the feelings return to fear and extreme hands tremble, constantly running to the bathroom. In the morning when I get up I feel great then I take DSS drug and immediately begins this funny look.

    I take citalopram for 1 week. It works, it gets better every day. On the 4th day the itching began, all over the body. I cream very much. Sometimes, I am wondering if the itching is temporary.

    Citalopram for Depression

    Because of chronic hepatitis C, which existed for about 12 years, I took peginterferon and Rebetol for 6 months. The side effects were numerous and very very debilitating. However, I would like to emphasize first that the Rosskur was successful, and my quality of life has increased significantly compared to before therapy !!! The side effects started harmless, with fever, fatigue, itching, constant urination, Hautiritationen, herpes, nightmares, then began after about 2 months sleep, stomach pain, anemia, weakness, shortness of breath, diffuse discomfort, mood lability, severe hair loss, and eventually increased in a moderate depression with very strong inner restlessness, anxiety, Heulattaken, aggressiveness, and complete powerlessness. Since I was a heroin addict 12 years ago, and my thoughts were getting blacker, to relapse thoughts and destructive fantasies, I wrestled with citalopram. Here came NW as strong tiredness, fatigue, flatulence, sensory disturbances in the feet, indifferent emotional state added. After discontinuation, which occurred gradually (by citalopram), marked withdrawal problems such as insomnia through restless legs and sweating. The restless legs stayed about 2 months with slow weakness. Then, thank God, it was over. The side effects of peginterferon and ribavirin go away relatively quickly. May recommend all medications conditionally. For me it was good in the end, for some others because of the severity of the depression sometimes fatal. Good is definitely a greater distance to the addiction past and a reasonably stable social network that I did not have. But in any case, a doctor who takes the time to listen to the NW and as with me, in psych. NW sensitive but reacts quickly.
