    Hello, I have been prescribed citalopram for depression about 4 months ago. For idling between therapy and waiting time. The early days so the first few days seemed. The drug mood-brightening, but I regularly had nightmares and had hot hungry attacks and my mouth was constantly dry. After just over a week, the depression came back, my doctor said the drugs needed their time to work and increased the dose, my cravings attacks remained with the time I was irritated and became aggressive, completely unawakened and Depressed over time came also claustrophobia and Mood swings I had no joy in things that I otherwise enjoyed, was indifferent and completely absent. In the later stages of the drug increase suicidal thoughts After discontinuing the drug, I got anxiety and still can not concentrate.

    Citalopram for Depression

    The citalopram intake (low dose) now led to problems in the second administration attempt. On the second day of administration, two emergency medical interventions were required. After the emergency doctor injected me with a sedative, 4 hours later I had a panic attack with considerable injuries, so that an immediate admission to the emergency room was necessary. I then had a substitute drug stopped in hospital because I did not want to risk taking an outpatient with such side effects again. My family’s family was shocked to have to watch this. I myself would not have been able to get help. I do not want to experience something so terrible again.

    Suffering for 15 years from recurring panic attacks and depressive episodes. Shopping is hard for me, last was not driving possible. At first I got my unstable phases with high-dose St. John’s wort, sports and much information about the development and dynamics of anxiety disorders again under control. Four years ago, however, I reached my limit and did inpatient psychotherapy with several years of follow-up care. I have always strictly rejected chemical drugs. Half a year ago, my condition had deteriorated again so that I broke off my social contacts, was barely able to work and was suffering from constant fear and pondering. For 2 months now I am taking Citalopram 20 mg / day. I was worried about taking psychotropic drugs, but my need and urge to change something was even greater. After 3 weeks (of which 1.5 weeks with 10 mg / day) aggravation of fears and nocturnal restlessness with morning sickness, I am now a new person, have no side effects, am much more active, take loads, but do not get scared. It’s like a great liberation from a condition I considered normal. Maybe I am very fortunate that Citalopram works for me so well and without any side effects, but I’m just happy to have found and tried it, and I can only recommend it to anyone. That’s why I write my little story here too. It is important not to rely on the medication and continue to work on yourself, but that too is much easier with relaxed and optimistic mood. Sincerely wish all those affected all the best and not to give up the power to find the way to a freer life for themselves. Hanna
