View Full Version : Citalopram effects?

07-26-2012, 10:46 AM
I was told to take citalopram by my doctor, and finally after getting the nerve took my first dose. I think that I am just highly sensitive to meds like this.
I took a 10mg dose, and soon after had a horrid headache, felt sick to my stomach, dizzy, and not confused, but forgetful in the felt like I'm loosing my mind kind of way.

The headache landed me in the ER due to over the counters not really touching it.
I spoke with my doctor today and she said that these are normal side effects, and should go away in a week or two.. Has anyone else had this reaction when starting this med?

I took it at a 20 dose 1 time after my dr. pushing me to try it. everything was worse for me. I was on the floor crying from feeling like i was going crazy. maybe it was all in my head but thats what its about anyways right?
