I have just been prescribed Citalopram, any good/bad experiences? I read up too much on side effects and freaked myself out about them!

Hi I had citolpram for a couple of years and had no reactions to it but I got to the stage where it didn't work on me anymore so had to have another set of tablets and the withdrawal wasn't that bad (for me) it was the break in between the drugs that was my problem good luck I'm sure that you will be fine as I say I had no reactions to them

Had them on and off for years, very helpful with anxiety side of things too, no affect to weight. I felt they weren't helping Mr anymore and I found tapering off them horrific! I was going through some though things that happened after I decided to change meds so obviously this didnt help.
Good meds though ;)

It didn't work for me at all, it made things worse but as people say different meds work differently for different people.

Has helped me a great deal, especially in terms of social anxiety.
The only thing that wasn't too great was the nausea when I initially started taking them, but that went away within a week for me.
