    Citalopram for Bulimia; Sleep disorders; Depression

    I did not start 10μm, but then went to the prescribed dose of 20μm after 2 days. And had strong side effects for almost 1 week. Nausea, tachycardia, sweats and could only lie down and sleep. But then something eased. I can not yet recognize a special effect, except that I am still very tired and especially in the morning even nausea occurs. But I hope that this also sets in.

    Side effects: Sweats; Palpitations; Nausea

    Citalopram for Eating disorder; Depression

    I took citalopram for one and a half years, at first only 10 mg, but the dose was increased up to 40 mg. On the one hand it helped me a lot against the depression, on the other hand a tolerance developed after a short time. In addition, I was often sick after taking the drug. Still, they started working fast and were very nice, but after weaning I realized that I feel very different. Well, in retrospect, I’m not really excited about it.

    Side effects: Nausea

    Citalopram for Eating disorder; Mood swings; Depression

    Have had childhood depression and strong mood swings, sometimes severe eating disorders (bulimia). For two years, I have been taking citalopram (first 20 mg, then 40 mg) and get along very well. The first 8 days after the start of treatment were very unpleasant: dizziness, nausea, extreme headache, tiredness. After about 8 days, the antidrug effect started and the side effects disappeared for the most part. What remains is tiredness (during the day) with simultaneous sleep disturbances (in the evening) and a complete loss of libido. Both side effects are tolerable for me and the benefit outweighs quite clearly (especially as sleep disorders and loss of libido for me would also be present in depression). The special advantage of the drug is in my eyes the reduction of mood swings with which at the same time the tendency to binge eating was reduced. Of weight gain I can report absolutely nothing (that would have been for me an immediate Absetzkriterium), on the contrary, in my opinion, the drug reduces the appetite. Overall, I can recommend Citalopram very much, but you should pay attention to two things in my opinion: take the drug in the morning in any case (otherwise strong sleep disorders), Caution with alcohol (one tolerates much less)

    Citalopram for Psychological instability; Depression

    In the first 5-8 days – dosage 20 mg. changing side effects (nausea, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, dry mouth, heavy sweating, inner restlessness). Then slight but steady improvement. After dose adjustment to 40 mg. renewed and increased side effects as above. After 14 days, most of them, fortunately, are so flattened that they can live with it. ATTENTION: For the male co-patients, the sexual desire is still very present but unfortunately not exercisable = & gt; lack of potency, erection = zero (even with the help of manual stimulation only very short), orgasm very weak. Unfortunately and a great pity for us guys !!.

    Citalopram for Drive disorders

    Ingested in the evening, tablets of 40 mg, changing manufacturers (generic). Initially, only a short nausea, then for about 2 weeks excessive sweating, which, however, put down. Drive returned to normal after a few days, negative thoughts and sadness disappeared after about 3 to 5 weeks. Unfortunately, after about 3 months severe side effects set in, which did not disappear even with dose reduction from 40 to 20: Extreme daytime tiredness with permanent tears (as after sleeping pill), in addition to wide awake at night, severe persistent headache, which did not disappear even with paracetamol or Ibu. Therefore, drug spiked, was not a problem. 14 days after scaling, no side effects were present. A second therapy attempt about 18 months later failed, this time set the above-mentioned side effects again. Neurologist no longer visited, because he claimed that it was a drug with extremely low probability of side effects, if I had problems with this, then with all the others. Nevertheless, my conclusion: If offered by the doctor, definitely take it! It helps a lot and not everyone has to fight with such severe side effects!

    Side effects: Sweat; Headache; Nausea; Fatigue

    Citalopram for Depression

    Citalopram must be taken with a meal, as otherwise nausea or stomach problems can occur very quickly. Special care with simultaneous consumption of coffee, here arises quickly great restlessness and trembling. Prefer to wait 1 hour after taking the coffee. Otherwise: sleep disorders, which has a depressive anyway, were more pronounced in me, but without these nagging negative thoughts. I also have a loss of libido, but a positive mood and serenity is much more important to me. I’m doing much better with the drug, more energy, open letters without fear, go to the phone, meet deadlines, all that I can do better now. I used to take citalopram for some time, but eventually the effect diminished. Possibly. would have helped a dose increase.

    Citalopram for Depression

    I suffered from severe generalized anxiety disorder and depression for more than 4 years, but did not dare to take psychotropic drugs and did not treat myself. A self-experiment with St. John’s wort (Jarsin) was unsuccessful. Finally, when I was about to commit suicide, I thought, now it does not matter, I’m trying – I went to a neurologist who prescribed Pram (citalopram) for me. I should start with 10mg and increase to 20mg after 2 weeks. Overcautious as I am, I preferred to start with 5mg (a quarter tablet), increase to 10mg after 2 weeks, and finally to 20mg after 3 or 4 weeks. This medicine has given me back my life! (But that has its price, and I’m not talking about money here …) After just a week with 5mg, I realized that something is changing. There were always small moments in which I felt better, and these moments became more and more frequent and longer. After a total of 3 weeks, two of them with 5mg and one with 10mg I was as newborn. I was the human being once again, many years ago. No fears, no depression, I just felt good, was able to live again and enjoy the beautiful things of everyday life. Although it went downhill a bit, but when I finally increased to 20mg, I remained stable. I’ve been taking Citalopram for almost exactly 5 years now, and have not had any serious and long-term mental health problems since as long as I took the pills (for the big one, see below). Side effects: After starting the intake and after each dose increase for about 1 week very severe headache, an unpleasant pressure on the chest, for about 2-3 weeks temporarily nausea and moderate dizziness. All of these side effects disappeared completely after 3-4 weeks at the latest. However, a very unpleasant side effect persisted – massive sexual disturbances to almost total impotence. Although an erection usually comes about, but then often passes along with the desire, the climax is rarely and then after a very long, sometimes hours of work, and even that is more of a relief that it is finally over. Overall, sex has nothing more pleasant and satisfying anymore. My weight has not changed significantly by taking the drug. Another very significant side effect is the so-called withdrawal symptoms, as they are called euphemism, to avoid such unpleasant words as dependence or addiction. The fact is, I am very dependent on Citalopram, and I can not get rid of it. I have now 4 reduction attempts from 20 to 10mg behind me, all have failed, a complete discontinuation is not to be dreamed. Lastly, I endured 4 agonizing months with 10mg, until I was finally completely viable at the end and thus practically voided the fourth attempt for failure and threw another 20mg one morning. 10 hours later, all complaints were blown away. It is NOT a recurrence of the original disease, as is often claimed. The complaints are predominantly physical in nature and differ in some cases considerably from those against which I got the drug at that time. The symptoms in reduction (I have tried it even with 15 instead of 20mg, did not work) is always in the same pattern: -2-3 days after the dose reduction nervousness and restlessness, but also a slight euphoria, overall good mood and Urge to move – After 1-2 weeks of anxiety comparable to those before taking, confusion and standing next to me, can no longer clearly think – After a total of 3-4 weeks of improvement, I’m fine for a few weeks, and I almost believe it A few weeks later, about 8 weeks after the dose reduction, gradual onset of physical symptoms reminiscent of a cold or flu: headache, cold feeling (runny nose with burning sensation in the nose, possibly slight sore throat, fatigue … ) is best compared to the day before a cold breaks out, only that the suspected cold never comes and the short-before-the-flu condition stops t -These complaints do not stop and increase over the following weeks. At some point I feel as if I have a fever of 40 degrees, my head almost bursts, I am seriously ill and can hardly get out of the apartment; every minute movement or physical activity is a terrible ordeal, I am practically no longer viable. Every examination at the doctor gives no result, I am physically healthy. No matter how long I try to endure this condition, it does not get any better, but gets worse every day. Longer a

    Citalopram for Depression

    The worst thing I ever got. I was miserable. Nausea, extremely strong dizziness, hearing problems, blurred vision, very tired, everything tasted different, yes sums forgot: I had no more eroticism, because I was suddenly unable to orgasm. Just before I came, the good feeling disappeared suddenly. That was a real happiness slower.

    Citalopram for Social phobia; Depression

    Now take Citalopram for 15 days against depression, severe sadness, fatigue and fatigue. There is also a social phobia. For years I thought therapy alone would be enough. When I arrived at a point where I saw that alone was no longer enough, I had citalopram prescribed. The first 10 days I had severe side effects like nausea, confusion (feeling like on drugs), lack of concentration, difficulty driving my car, severe fatigue, libido completely gone. Because of all these side effects, I wanted to discontinue the drug several times. Luckily I kept it through !!! Because after 10 days the NW had disappeared. I can laugh again, really freed laugh by this drug !! I could not do that for years. Now I regret that I did not start using the drug much earlier. It is really recommended, you just have to survive the start time with the creep effects.

    Citalopram for Sleep disorders; Depression

    Hello everybody! I’ve been reading this for a long time now and find this portal really informative. I have been taking citalopram for about 2 months now because of my depression that has developed from my youth. I am a typical divorce child in a very positive sense. Nevertheless, until very short before, depression was particularly troublesome, especially at lunchtime and in the evening before falling asleep. I was initially prescribed 10 mg of citalopram because of the good tolerability (diarrhea, morning sickness, restless legs) after 2 weeks to 20 mg. The depression of the day went back to almost 100%. However, I had big problems falling asleep. That could only be remedied by a good night beer. Of course, that could not stay that way. After another discussion with my doctor, I was therefore on 15 mg and then adjusted to 30 mg mirtazapine. I can fall asleep really well! Side effects: During the day strong restless legs. In the evening after taking mirtazapine: Severe fatigue, muscle weakness, confusion. I have to say, I only take 30 mg for 2 days. Since taking Mirtazapine 8kg weight gain !!! (I only take it for almost 2 weeks!) Despite everything outweighs the benefits! I finally feel like a normal person and a lot more sociable. I hope I could inform. 🙂 All of you a get well soon!

    Citalopram for Adjustment disorder

    Ingestion: 1st week 20 mg, then increased to 40 mg. Maintain dose until now. After initially occurring side effects (about 4 days), such as morning nausea, slight trembling and strengthening of the RLS, I was quickly noticeably better. I could sleep again, eat again. I regained my strength. My usual self-confidence and cheerfulness was back. I was me again! I am doing very well, feel absolutely fit and fun-loving. I have no side effects anymore. I thank my doctor for his help and for making me strong again and enjoying my life again. The drug I will now slowly crawl out. Can the drug recommend to anyone, I have only had good experiences.
