Citalopram 20mg upped to 30mg
I had been suffering with OCD,Anxiety and depression for at least 5 years and only 4months ago did I start medication to help. I tried natural theripies and the fact that I have a phobia of pills and being sick,i put of going to the doctors and suffering in silence for years. I finally plucked up the courage when I went to see an angel therapist and reki, I got put on 0mg citalopram I had no major side effects apart from the first week I did have a dizzy head but apart from that nothing else UNTIL I was on it for at least1 month. I have wind :-( I never pumped,trumped,farted a lot. My family knows about it so its not too bad around them. But if I am out I have to dart in a quite place so I can do it :-( But the pills helped me from day 1 I felt the effects of them after 5days, they helped me relax about germs and dirt (I am not cured but they have helped) until you suffer from OCD in a way that it rules your life and are terrified of germs,sickness and dirt this pill has helped but its not gone away. I just needed to relax more and I have, Im not saying I have forgotton about germs etc but I am better. They had to be upped from 20mg to 30mg is because they wasn't helping me with my anxiety of going out the house.

Citalopram and paranoia
My best friend was on citalopram for quite a while. After having problems with his life doctor upped the dosage just before Christmas. He became more and more paranoid and anxious. He wasn't the person I had know for the past 15 Years. After Christmas it became worse and worse even though he had gone back to his GP on 3 occasions and had 2 therapy sessions. He committed suicide on 24th January 2014. I had a last phonecall from him just before he died the distress he was in was heartbreaking. But he would not listen to anyone who was trying to convince him the paranoia was in his head. I think the GP prescribed something else for the anxiety in the last 3 weeks of his life but I don't know what they were. I hope this can help at least one person not to go down the same road.
