Citalopram :: Week 8 , Still On 10 Mg Citalopram - No Motivation

Apr 7, 2016

I gave up my job because I was so stressed and such an emotional wreck. I 've gone back to uni to do another course, I have tasks to complete and I just don't feel motivated to do anything at all. I m doing work experience and I don't care anymore. I m On list to see therapist at the end of month. I'm usually active  person and maybe  it's the anxiety that kept me going but all I do now Is not to do anything at all I lay about  and sleep I postpone everything I need to do is this normal? I have no energy or drive, has anyone else experienced this?

Citalopram :: 20mg To 40mg Citalopram?

I have had a really tough year, and was prescribed citalopram 12 weeks ago, started on 10mg for 2 weeks then 20mg ever since. I haven't been feeling any better, I have been going through a break up so its hard to know what's heartbreak and what's depression but the only thing that's seemed to be improving is anxiety which was taking over my life.

I still wake up most days not wanting to move, feeling hopeless and like I don't want to be here (I wouldn't physically hurt myself) and non stop crying and fear of the future and low self esteem. I used to be so confident and outgoing and happy, my world has crashed in the last year and recently I spoke to my doctor who has raised the dose to 40mg which I have now been taking for 3 days. I feel absolutely worse and again not sure if it's circumstantial. I feel embarrassed In Front of my friends and family as one minute I'll be crying and struggling to breath having a panic attack and the next I'll be laughing and smiling. Has anyone else suffered in the same way? I am hoping that this dosage is what I need but I'm just having teething problems. Right now though I feel very scared and worried it's not going to do the trick if I feel like this.

Citalopram And Bruising

I've been on 10mg of Citalopram for 8 weeks, a few days ago I knelt on a small toy which didn't hurt just made me jump. I now have a completely bruised knee (it's totally purple!) Has anyone else experience excessive bruising or should I worry that it's something else??!?

Citalopram And Alcohol

Started on Citalopram before Christmas and gradually worked up to 20 mg per evening. Had been at that level for 3 weeks by the end of last week. It seemed to be working well in combination with Amitriptyline to help with the sleep disturbance. Anxiety and depression were controllable and I felt more positive about my marriage.

​Had a dry January, so thought it would be OK to have a few drinks at the weekend. Nothing OTT, just a few drinks, not a binge. Since then I have been irritable, agitated and feel very pessimistic about my feelings for my wife.

​Does alcohol counteract the Citalopram, especially this early on. I'm racked with doubts and anxiety.

Citalopram With Alcohol

I have been on 20mg of citalopram and 20 mg of propranolol, I have also been taking 2mg of diazepam when I need it, for the last 4 weeks and as it's coming up to Christmas, I do enjoy a beer or two, I asked my dr was allowed to drink on the tablets and she said yes I could have one or two but don't get drunk (not that I would with a 5 year old and 4 month old) but I was just wondering does anyone have any 1st hand experiences taking alcohol on medication.  I haven't had any alcohol for the last 4 weeks

Can I Take Cannabis With Citalopram?

I have been down for a while and it got bad lately, doc gave me citalopram to start taking, this is my first day. i smoke weed most days, does anyone else do this whilst taking this drug? i don't blame weed for making me depressed, if anything i blame all the pills and md i took at a young age but mainly personal life problems. i've read the response to the alcohol one and seems most people still drink, i'm more scared to drink though, been a bad drunk lately, get too drunk, upset, memory loss and that's without the meds.

I Want To Stop Taking Citalopram

I'm so fed up! I don't see how my life can go from so good, to this complete isolation within a couple of weeks. I'm constantly anxious about my future, and what lies ahead for me. I feel so insecure, and feel like i'm living my life day by day, to survive. Citalopram is just making me tired at strange times of the day, i have NO motivation to do anything at all. I tried to see friends yesterday, but didn't enjoy it at all, i just wanted to be at home, this is not me? I feel like i've got someone else's personality.

Work is so hard, to just be in. I feel like there's no one there for me other than my Mum.

I seriously don't know how i'm going to get through this now. I'm so scared.

I'm seeing my counsellor later today, its the only thing thats keeping me going today.

Citalopram :: Headache And Dizziness

I'm 26 years old and a week ago I felt a sudden headache in my left part of the head(left Parietal Lobe) and my head fell down suddenly like I was fainted. This lasted not more than 30 seconds and happened twice on the same day. 

Now sometimes I feel a headache in my left part of the head(mainly Parietal Lobe area) and the dizziness never appeared again. 

I'm 175 cm tall, and weight is 70kg 

I'm a software engineer and work almost 10 hours a day with the computer. 

I also do some studies after my work. 

I go on jogging every day. 

I occasionally take liquor and smoke(once per month may be) 

I'm following intermittent fasting( I don't take my breakfast, only lunch and dinner) for about 30 days now. 

I think with my work and studies, the stress is a bit high.

Citalopram :: Vivid Dreams

Hi all, I've been on cit for about 7 months now, its slow going but I am progressing to recovery, i'm pretty certain of that. My question is regarding some very vivid dreams i'm having, they can be about absolutely anything but in them I have the most severe depression/anxiety where there is absolutely no hope for me, they're freaking me out a little as i'm now thinking these dreams will become reality. Has anyone else suffered from horrible dreams whilst on cit?

Cannot Sleep After Cannabis And Citalopram Together?

This might be really stupid but it's 1am and I cannot fall sleep at all. I just started taking cita 3 days ago. I use cannabis for many reasons already, usually for my poor appetite, anxiety, and to go to bed. I am trying to overcome this depression and get help. So I thought I shouldn't smoke while in the process. I can't sleep and still no appetite, my mind is going crazy I don't know if I should use cannabis to help me still or wait it out and let the pills do their job?
