    Citalopram for Overweight

    The drug is well tolerated. Due to the strong libido disorders, however, not recommended. It is quite common for the drug to be one of the side effects. If that does not bother or who does not, the drug is well-advised.

    Side effects: Libido disorders

    Citalopram for A headache; Drive disorders; Sleep disorders; Depression

    Due to a very late recognized sinus vein thrombosis (head), I suffer for 11 years of chronic brain pain, which have a strong impact on my entire life. Unfortunately, normal analgesics do not help at this point. Tramal drops were prescribed for me, they help because they look central. But have huge side effects. Due to the chronic intake creates a dependency, Without it can not go, with going for other things like sexuality, lust for life, Apetit, and lost hope for a normal life. A severe depression developed, but I did not realize it until I was ready to wake up in the morning. Feelings for my little son or husband were blown away. The worse you were, the more you distanced yourself. I have worked so hard in my work that I have developed a so-called stress epilepsy due to the existing brain cortex due to my acute brain thrombosis. If there was too much stress then I got numbness in my fingers or in my shoulder. The closer it came to the seizure, the more it tingled in my head, in addition, there was a very enormous pressure on my head .– then came directly the cerebral seizure ……. After that, nothing went, I suffered Amnesia, did not know names or the reason why I was suddenly surrounded by doctors and hung up on an infusion. Only after hours did the memories come back. Many drugs have been tried, many with unbearable side effects. Unfortunately I am still not perfect today.

    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 Burnout syndrome

    Hello, I’ve been taking the medication for about 5 weeks now because of a burnout syndrome. It took a good 14 days until the effect has begun which is normal with antidepressants. After I thought it would not be any better, I can only say that I have not felt so good in a long time. The fear has disappeared and the depression has also disappeared. Now I can finally focus on myself and have my head free to change my life. That’s what it should be therapy-supportive and no cure. I had weighed only 58 kilos before the collapse with a size of 180 cm, now I weigh 68 kilos and go for 3 weeks 3 times a week in the gym. I could through the drug mental and physical change. Yes, now to the side effects: they are there but bearable, such as. Sweats, light heart racing and yes the sex drive is greatly reduced but not completely eliminated. It takes a little longer to orgasm. The weight gain also comes with the drug in my case but positive :-). Partly concentration difficulties easily occur but are minimal. I can only recommend the drug to get back on track, but the cause must be found by other therapies. And then the drug should also be discontinued slowly.
