Started Taking Citalopram And My Head Feels Weird

Sep 20, 2014

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.

Weird Sounds In My Ear With Head Pressure And Dizziness

I started these pressure headache on top of the head and my one ear felt like was close also i feel weird sounds in my ear ( not always). The head pressure was soo much that i feel dizzy and felt that i would fall off.

I did CT sinus , MRI cervical , MRI head and all these test came clear so the neurologist told me that it's basically your anxiety as you have panic attack in which i feel pain in my chest , shortness of breath and constant muscle pain.

The most important factor here is that i have IBS for the past 2 years now which is high enough for me.

The doctor has given me Seroxat 12.5 mg ( paroxetine hydrochloride) which i have been take for the past 6 days but this medicine is not helping and in fact when i take it i feel that headache has grown more with shortness of breath and stomach upset and tremor in my hand or shall i say fingers but ve but the doctor is saying that it's not the reaction , its normal thing and you would adjust it in 2 weeks.

Citalopram :: The Road Is Long, But Improvement Feels Good

After what feels like a lifetime of side effects and then nothing, I think things are looking up. Had a great day today, and I haven't said that in a while, particularly on a Monday. I have counted hours, days and weeks. Like everyone else I have questioned my dose and the medication on many occasions and felt like giving up a million times. To everyone who encouraged me to keep going and give it time, thank you, because it does get better in its own good time. I have no doubt that there will be ups and downs to come, but hey, I think I'm going to make it! Yes it really has taken 20 mg this long to start to work on my head , so keep at it during the early weeks. I hope everyone is letting a little more light in every day.

Abdominal Pain - Started Taking Ramipril 3 Days Ago

I have had low and mid abdominal pain and bloating for a couple of days, which is getting worse. Since last night I have also had upper abdominal burning pain and nausea. I started taking Ramipril 3 days ago for high blood pressure and have read that gastrointestinal inflammation, abdominal discomfort and dyspepsia can be common side effects, so I am assuming this is the cause. I can't see a doctor for 3 days. Is there anything I can do to ease the pain/burning in the meantime please? I have taken paracetamol, a pro-biotic and gaviscon tablets to no effect.

Eating Disorders :: Started Taking Laxatives To Lose Weight

I've always had bad self esteem and body image issues. But recently since I had my doctor I've started taking laxatives to lose weight. I'll take a whole box or drink a whole bottle of milk magnesia. I've cut back to only one small meal every few days and right now I haven't really eaten in four days.

I have to weigh myself constantly because if I don't know how much I weight I freak out. If I eat anything my first thought is to get it out of me. Food in general has been making feel sick lately. It's becoming gross. Even the sight of it or somebody eating is gross.

I need to eat but the number on the scale just keeps going down and I'll tell myself this is my last laxative. I'll eat tomorrow. But the number will be low and I'll think that if I do it for one more day then it'll get lower.

I'm wondering if I could be developing an ED. I'm not super thin. Infact, ever since having my daughter I'm a little over weight. Would I even be aware of it if I had one?

Birth Control :: Started Taking Tri-Lo Sprintec 9 Days After Period Ended

I started taking tri-Lo Sprintec 9 days after the ending of my last period. I took the first 3 on time but I started getting really sick and couldn't hold anything down so I waited and doubled up on the the 6th day until i got caught up on day 9.dayWell I started I period on day 7. I thought the first 7 pills were placebos to help keep track.

Did I wait too long after my last day of my period to take them and being inconsistent with taking them caused me start a period? Also, if I keep taking them will it stop my period?

The menstrual blood itself looks dry blood with clots. But a few times its been red but again majority of it looks like dry blood.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Citalopram :: Pain / Numbness /tingling At Back Of My Head

So I've decided to bite the bullet and move up to 20 mg after being on 10mg for 4 months.

The side effects aren't as bad there manageable which is a plus.

I do have pain/numbness/tingling in the back right hand side of my head (I think it's where the mind is located) I was wondering if this will go away as it's driving me crazy day in day out .
