I have been taking citalopram for over a year. I have never experienced much negative reactions until recently my doctor and i decide to increase my dose. The 20mg wasnt enough. But now i have had joint pain in both arms. I do have tendonitis in my left shoulder already but this is pain tingling all through the arm.

Gag reflex and constant yawning on Citalopram?
I am dealing with anxiety, depression and an eating disorder. I've lost weight rapidly since Christmas and as a result decided it was time to finally face my problems. I've signed up for all therapy and counselling I can get but there are nothing but waiting lists. I have no appetite whatsoever, the thought of food makes me feel like vomiting but I've been trying really hard to eat at least one meal a day. I was reluctant to go on Citalopram because I felt I wanted to be able to fight this myself without the medication, plus I've been told it can make you so much worse. I haven't particularly had suicidal thoughts to the point I would act on them...but I have had them, and I don't want this to push me over the edge. I'm on 20mg and I'm only on my second day and i can't stop yawning. I'm yawning excessively like every 2 minutes and my gag reflex is so bad, any smell or time I speak I gag? It's like my throat is swollen. Is this normal? Also is it better to take it at night or morning? I am terrified my sleeping pattern will get messed up because lack of sleep seems to make me so much worse and I started my new job yesterday and I'm determined to not let all of this shit fuck anything else up for me. Any advice or shared experience would be appreciated.

Citalopram made me think everyone were actors and I was in an unreal world
In 2003 I was prescribed the dreadful antidepressant citalopram. Have you ever seen the film The Trueman Show starring Jim carrey where he is living in an artificial world? This is what I felt like on citalopram. I genuinely thought that I was being filmed and that everyone were actors who all knew who I was. I would overhear conversations in a pub or when shopping and believe that they were all talking about me even though they were complete strangers. After a month of this I threw the tablets away. It has taken years for these paranoia effects to disappear. I would strongly recommend that you think twice about using citalopram.

Is it ok to take Citalopram and Citalopram both at the same time.

I'm really not explaining myself properly.. My husband has been on Donepezil for two years now but has now been prescribed Citalopram because of mood swings and false beliefs. So is it ok to take both tablets together or should I give them to him at different times of the day?!

Sorry that should say Citalopram and Donepezil at the same time
