    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 Obsessive compulsive disorder; Depression

    Only with a few drugs is the relationship between symptom relief (depression, obsessional thoughts) and intake so clearly visible to me as with citalopram. Here are 10mg me, to maintain the improvement even sometimes 5mg. If I quit completely, the symptoms will return fairly predictably, sometimes with a few weeks delay, sometimes faster. After resuming, I feel more calm after the first dose, and within a few days I am stable again. Contrary to the general recommendation, it has turned out to be useful for me not to take citalopram in the morning, but only at closing time, as it seems relaxing for me. Also taking before bed is more conducive to sleep. When I take it in the morning, I get lazy at work, become more motivated in the evening, and can not go to bed. I have to complain about side effects: – Restless Legs (annoying, but not so bad as to prevent me falling asleep) – slight weight gain (in the acceptable range, but associated with the need to constantly pay attention to weight, which I do not without citalopram must) – Orgasm much more difficult (alone it always works, sometimes with difficulty, but with different women, I am despite erection failed) – erection much more difficult

    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.
