    Citalopram for Stress; Mood swings; Post-traumatic stress disorder; Borderline; Sleep disorders; Depression

    For about 2 years I get (with a short break) promethazine (currently 50mg). The dose may be too low, because until I get tired, it takes hours, fears hardly go away and the restlessness is not gone quickly. But when I get calmer and calm down, sleep is usually reasonably good, sometimes very good. Citalopram I get for about 1 year, currently 15mg (were times 10mg, sometimes 20mg). Compatibility is actually quite good, but I do not really know if it really is due to the drug, that sometimes I feel a little better, or if it is simply because psychotherapy is making progress. Sometimes I still have my break-ins, as well as the mood swings. Tavor I get only as an emergency drug, then in 1-2mg. It usually brings an improvement and the side effects are not more important than the effect, but it is not really recommended because it has addictive potential. If only in emergency situations and not permanently! For people with addictive problems sometimes less suitable, where I also have a phlebotomy addictive, but which does not necessarily refer to addiction-promoting remedies. Remestan sometimes works after hours, sometimes not at all – depending on the tension and restlessness, I still do not sleep or not sleep much. For some people, it may be useful to know that it has somehow sensory side effects (weird mouthfeel, other sensations are somehow different), but this is not important to me as long as it works and the side effects are not threatening, no permanent damage leave behind or even deadly.

    Side effects: Dependence

    Citalopram for Post-traumatic stress disorder; Social phobia; Depression

    Standing completely next to me, as outside my body, – headache without end – sweating – dry mouth – pimple outbreaks on the forehead – tinnitus much much intensiever – libido loss, loss of interest, self-pacification hardly possible I could notice except the side effects, no positive effects, I was forced to drop it. LAIF900 has helped me the best so far

    Citalopram for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    Most of the time I was sick during the familiarization phase and I was very tired. Then citalopram (30mg) finally unfolded its effect (after about 6 weeks) and my fears were gone, I had more drive and life again made sense. For 12 years, that was the case and now I am slowly dropping off. By now at 5mg, the dizziness still does not stop, from time to time I see flashes and sleep very badly. It’s like having one skin layer less. I am more sensitive and unbalanced. I want to get it under control … I needed the tablet, it helped, but now I want to be myself again – without citalopram.

    Side effects: Blurred vision; Dizziness

    Citalopram for Post-traumatic stress disorder; Depression

    Citalopram was the first antidepressant prescribed with 10mg, later increased to 20mg. The antidepressive effect was completely absent, but I had in the first 3 weeks terrible circulatory problems, restlessness and anxiety and anxiety, which I never had before. It is probably a drug to which many responses and that is usually tolerated quite well, so I recommend anyway to try it further. I also have to say that mirtazapine was taken in at the same time, which of course could also be involved in the initial side effects.
