Citalopram definitely causes cystitis. I have started it three times and each time this has happened . The second time I went on with it for six months and it got better but this time I am not willing to go on with it. Too painful damn it! Doctors have always pooh poohed it!!

I've always had very clear skin. I would get a pimple once in awhile but other than that I can boast that I would get plenty of compliments on my skin. My skin has steadily gotten worse and I was chalking it up to adult acne. I've been rattling my brain trying to figure out what's changed in the past year or two and I realized the only thing that's different is citalopram. I was warned that it was effect my memory (which it has) but not of this less common side effect. It all clicked today and I did some research online. Apparently other people are suffering too!

I've been on Citalopram for a year now and my body has gotten used to the intrusion. Initially though, after my first week on it, my dose was increased from 10mg to 20mg and that triggered a spasm in my neck which lasted three days. I was prescribed Quetiapine to combat this as it is an anti-psychotic which also acts as a tranquilliser. Eventually, I was able to increase my dosage again until I reached my current 40mg dose. I still occasionally experience an involuntary spasm, especially when I'm surprised by a loud sound (like fireworks or loud bass). I'm not sure if I'll ever truly be rid of it

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

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.
