  • When do you know if citalopram just isn't working?

    I am in that panicked state of ruminating about whether citalopram just isn't working for me or whether I haven't given it enough time. I finished week 12 - 1 week on 10mg, 7 weeks on 20mg, 4 weeks at 30 mgs. I have experienced almost every side effect possible but they seem to be slowly lessoning....

  • Brain zaps coming off of Citalpram/Celexa

    I was on 20mg of ceIexa for about a year after weight gain, my doctor decided to have me wean off of it and get on Buspar. It's taken 3 months to wean off of Citalopram. Last two weeks I've had two 2.5mg tablets over a 3 day period. It's now been 6 days without any medication. How long do...

  • Coming off citalopram. :(

    I've been on 20mg citalopram now for just over a year. I decided to come off about 3 weeks ago as I had started to feel so much better, which I put down to a combination of counselling and the drug which really did do wonders for my depression. I actually hadn't realised quite how bad it was...

  • Going back to celexa

    Okay well I haven’t posted on here in a while. I’ve come full circle my friends. I was on celexa for 6 months, it stopped my panic attack’s pretty much completely but I was very spaced out in the beginning which I didn’t like.

  • Citalopram and alcohol

    I’m switching from 100mg Zoloft to celexa, to treat postpartum anxiety which is causing me a great deal of dizziness. Although I’m not convinced this is what’s causing the dizziness, anxiety can do that? Never been a symptom of anxiety in the past for me.  Anyways, just wondering if drinking a few...

  • Cit 10mg side effects and weaning off

    Hey everyone. So, my doctor just prescribed me Citalopram 10mg because I have a surgery coming up in a few weeks and, seeing as how I've never "gone under the knife," so to speak, it's caused some pretty crazy anxiety issues. I've now been taking it for 2 days. I'm aware of...

  • Anxiety and Sensitised Nerves

    Someone asked if I'd share this in a public post (this is from a private message we had). As well as taking Citalopram, I found understanding about anxiety was a big breakthrough for me and helped me recover.

  • Feeling like Citalopram might be "overkill".

    (If you are in a rush, skip to the end for my question!) Hi all, I've spent most of the morning reading your posts on this topic. I've gleaned that everyone should expect side effects while getting used to the drug, but that is actually not my concern in this case. I'm a 41 year old male...

  • Maybe this is a dumb question.. :)

    but I thought I ask anyway.  I don't know much about a/d's but am very curious about this.  If the anti depressants are NOT working do you still get the side effects.  It seems to me that if you are getting the side effects that they are working in the system but if they aren't...
