I Want To Stop Taking Citalopram

Apr 28, 2014

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.

Hyperthyroidism :: Taking Carbimazole And Citalopram Together

I've just started taking carbimazole and Citalopram and wondered if there is anyone else taking these meds together please?  The Citalopram is for anxiety caused by the hyperthyroidism. Has anyone else been in the same position and have you found they've helped or have you had any side effects?  

I take my meds at night before I go to bed.  So far, I've had a terrible headache and when I get up in the morning I feel almost 'spaced' out and really groggy but nothing major and I'm hoping these will pass once my body gets used to it?

Mirtazapine :: How To Stop Taking It?

I have been on Mirt for about 5 weeks now.

I started on 30mg but the side effects are horrendous for me - it started with just a few aches, that gradually got worse by the day until every muscle in my body hurt (even my fingers and toes) and had put on almost a stone in weight. After 3wks on 30mg I had a follow up appointment with the Doctor, after mentioning all the problems I was having, he decreased my dose to 15mg and said a reduced dose would help with the side effects - it did for a few days, but the past week all of the above side effects have returned and are again getting worse each day.

I am going to stop taking them. Yes - I do feel I need something for my low moods - but my Doctor was reluctant to change the medication and the side effects are making me feel terrible physically.

So without the lectures of 'go back to your dr' etc etc, I am after some advice on how to stop taking this medication? Do I just stop? Do I lower my dose again, or take the dose every other day and over how long a time period?

Fibromyalgia - Taking Quetiapine Along With Zopiclone And Citalopram

I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, with severe depression. It has been coming up for over a year now. Just started taking quetiapine along with zopiclone and citalopram. Idea is to come off zopiclone/citalopram and increase quetiapine. Is this the only treatment for this?? Only thing I have noticed is I am now having more than 2 hrs sleep. Other than that all the symptoms are exactly the same.

Orlistat :: Any Feedback When You Stop Taking It?

I have lost a large amount of weight. Blood sugar good, blood pressure amazing, jeans back on. I still have a way to go, and I hope I will do that. I can put on weight with very little effort though and I worry that when I stop taking orlistat my weight will rocket back up. I know to eat sensibly and exercise - really I do, my doctor mentions this quite a lot. I wonder though if any of you have experience of life after orlistat and how difficult it is going to be.

Started Taking Citalopram And My Head Feels Weird

I have just been put on citalopram 3 days ago on 20 mg. I'm so tired and have not left my bed in the past 3 days. My head feels weird and i do feel really sick till round the afternoon. I'm thinking of taking the tablet before bed see if that makes any difference as i might sleep through it. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms ? Will this actually work , i know it doesn't work straight off but will i start to feel better in time ?

I have zero energy , i feel constantly down , i hate leaving the house and i have shut myself of from the outside world. I have lost my friends but that was through my friend who went out to ruin my life and turned everyone against me. I really hope these tablets will help me get back to the person i was. Im going to start the gym once im more confident and have controlled my anxiety.

Depression :: Started Taking Citalopram And Crying For No Reason

Today may 24 I just started taking my citalopram 10mg and at first I was okay. But then I felt overwhelmed. I felt like my head wasn't getting any oxygen. Like someone was sitting on my head. When for a car ride with my wife and just felt motion sickness. All day I didn't feel normal and then all of a sudden I just started crying for no reason. I had to force myself to eat. I feel really tired and drained but I can tend to even take a nap. I just don't know what to do.

Just Started Taking Citalopram - Feel Panicky And Dizzy

Iv started citalopram yesterday 20mg but the dr only told me to start with half to start with. I am 22. Never been on any tablets like this before so I am really scared. I constantly feel dizzy like I'm going to die and pass out and sick and feel like someone is standing on my head. Does anyone know when the side effects will go? And are these tablets any good? When you start seeing results? I know the dr told me to only start taking half but I already feel panicky and dizzy.

Citalopram :: 2 Days Of Taking - Felt My Head On Fire

I was recently put on this medication for PPD and anxiety, I was hesitant from the beginning. Last night after 2 hours of taking my 10 mg dosage I felt so out of it and felt like I was dreaming, shortly after I felt my head on fire. Soon it moved to the rest of my body. I was so scared, fiancé decided to take me to the hospital because he saw how I was. He also noticed my eyes were extremely dilated. The doctor that seen me just pretty much said stop taking it and call your dr first thing but it's the weekend so I'm out of luck. Right now I'm still feeling out of it, sweaty palms, anxious. Not really wanting to leave the couch. I feel worse now then when I started this medication. I regret taking this drug, it completely scared me to take any sort of antidepressant.

Stopped Taking Citalopram - Yawning, Shaky And Teeth Grinding

I've just started taking Citalopram a day ago but already feel the side effects starting. Is it normal for them to start so soon? I feel weirdly sleepy and keep yawning. I also feel a bit shaky and for some reason I can't stop grinding my teeth. Are these symptoms or am I just imagining them because I know that I will be experiencing them soon? I would love for some people to share their experiences with the drug, it's taken me a while to get to the point where I've been comfortable enough to finally talk about my depression and start taking them.

Omeprazole :: Warning - Serious Side Effects, Stop Taking It

For those of you who are just starting to take omeprazole, please stop and find other alternatives!!! I have endured so much agony from this medication since I first started taking it last year. You might feel better initially but if you take it for longer than 2 weeks, you will find it extremely difficult, if not impossible to get off of it because the rebound acid is a killer.

On top of that, I've experienced some horrible side effects (which I've never had before):

- exercise-induced tachycardia: extremely fast and uncontrollable heartbeat (over 200 bpm).

- heart palpitations and irregular heartbeat

- anxiety

- chest pains

- extreme fatigue

- depression

I am a healthy, physically active 34 yr old female and was prescribed omeprazole for a mild stomach irritation or suspected ulcer. I stayed on it for several months with few symptoms at the time. However, going off of it was another story. Because these pills stop your stomach from producing acid, it burns and hurts enormously when you try to go off of it. As well, after I managed to wean myself off (I had to go through a juice fast in order to do it), I started developing digestive issues I'd never had before like heartburn and reflux. I believe it is these pills which have caused it as I'd never had heartburn until taking it.

And now, having been on it a 2nd time, I've developed the list of symptoms above which have caused me endless grief!

I've read other stories of people having the same symptoms as well as a host of other problems like osteoporosis because it drains your body of calcium.

More people need to know about the dangers of this medication. I read about people staying on this for years and developing even more conditions!
