Hi PaddyWhack. I finally plucked up the courage to take citalopram this morning and I feel AWFUL I am so scared. I can’t sit still and haven’t relaxed all day. I’m now in bed and can’t relax or sleep. I feel like I’ve gone mad. I don’t know what to do.Hi Rexie. I was on Citalopram last year and indeed the first week or two are rough, side effects for me were headaches, dry mouth, joint pain, sweating (which started every day at 3pm whatever that's about) and VERY vivid dreams (got around this by taking them 1st thing in the morning) despite this I would take them again if I needed them.
Like yourself a viral ear infection sent me into my downward spiral, did you know it can take upwards of 7 months to physically recover?
It's funny reading your post because it's so similar to my experience I could have written it myself.
Anyway stay strong I'm here 4u if u need to talk.
