    Citalopram for Migraine; Depression

    First use: 20mg daily for 4 weeks in the morning. Significant decrease in migraine, few side effects but no significant decrease in depression. Only noticeable side effect: loss of libido and ejaculation disorders. Then increase the dose to 40mg. Thereafter, migraine attacks remained almost completely absent, with a loss of libido and ejaculation disorders, as well as fatigue and still sleeping problems. These were expressed by the fact that I woke up almost every hour from 02:00 o’clock in the morning and partly fell asleep again.

    Citalopram for Migraine; Depression

    Have tried several migraine remedies, but Allegro contracted me the best. I just get tired of it sometimes, but it’s not always the same. Together with citalopram, which would have helped me very well, or another SSRI, however, it results in a dangerous combination with serious consequences. Therefore, I have immediately discontinued the citalopram and must be adjusted to another antidepressant.

    Side effects: Fatigue

    Citalopram for Migraine; Depression

    I have had migraines for 30 years. When I took the pill yet, it started exactly one week before the onset and lasted for two weeks. The rest of the month I recovered from the seizure. However, as the doctors found the pill in connection with migraine questionable, I discontinued it at the age of 34. The pain came now irregularly about 15 to 20 days in the month. Until then I had pain suppositories which put me completely paralyzed. Then suddenly there was the miracle drug Sumatriptan.Ich get the ataxes more quickly under control, but push them in principle only weiter.Aber the days of lying in the darkened room and the constant handing omitted. Preventative beta-blockers were given twice at intervals of a few years, but did not help. Life is very limited with constant migraine pain. Private problems arose, mood swings, depression. The fluktin drug really helped me in the 90’s with no side effects. But as it is very revocable as a drug, I put it off when I felt better. When I did not feel well again in 2006, I got citalopram which was supposed to increase the self-production of serotonin. They did that too. But the migraine got worse and worse and the sumatriptan tablets did not help anymore. I had constant pains without end. Very rarely a pain-free day. Erts when I felt so bad that I was no longer able to get the doctor’s prescription from the doctor and thus could not take the Citaloprampillen ceased the continuous headache abruptly. I had three months of severe withdrawal symptoms from the medication. Raging pain in the legs, tremors, agitation. I would never take it again. But since my migraine still has not improved, I started therapy with topiramate 63 days ago. After taking the first pill (25 mg in the evening), I immediately had six pain-free days. Then again six days in a row migraine.Then again six days no.So in about it remained. Initial side effects such as dizziness, nausea, shaking after taking disappeared after two weeks. However, I have speech disorders, word-finding difficulties, am incredibly forgetful, impotent, very quickly exhausted, can not concentrate and I get sick at the slightest effort and I have to sit down. Moreover, I am tired than usual, irritated and howl now only. My feelings and my perception has changed. I start to mourn things that were long forgotten, have the feeling that I am spooking, getting into something and not coming. I will sell the topiramate. The latest idea is that I have a lactose intolerance (has never come on it before) as the migraine amplifies when my diet more sum more lactose-containing foods add up. (You should definitely check, can be cause for many!) Wish me luck! oh yes, weight loss under topiramate was about 3 kilos, but now I’m really appetite again)
