It began very well for a couple of years until this year when, if I took it in the day, I began passing out and last month, I landed in the hospital with low blood pressure when standing. I've been diagnosed with severe iron deficiency anemia. I'm now getting infusions and have come off of this medicine and am feeling a lot better. If you take it, please be careful and get your blood checked yearly, especially if you're a woman.

Started on citalopram a week ago at 20 mg my Dr wants me to increase to 40 after one week my symptoms so far have been confusion, lack of concentration, dizziness, dilated pupils, dry mouth, headaches and strange flutter/beat of my heart to name a few. Afraid to increase dose.

Starting to feel better

now on week 12 of cit and 12 days at 20mg.
Life feels like it's beginning again. Although the early days on citalopram were dreadful I am thankful of sites like these that give hope at the time of despair. I am improving daily and want you all to know that each and everyone of you will get better with the right meds and therapy if required. I spent many weeks feeling like I was detached from life and felt like there would be no end to my suffering. Retching sweating crying not eating and completely isolating was my norm. Today I have hope and although still fighting through I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Stay strong and there honestly is an end to dreadful illness

My doc recently prescribed citalopram for my depression. I've never taken any kind of antidepressants, But I've been using Crystal meth for about !0 years. I dont want to mix the drugs, I've been cutting down on meth. if eventually stop using meth and start taking citalopram what kind of effects will I go through?

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.
