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.

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.
