starting citalopram after sertraline
2 Replies RSS
was on sertraline 25mg for 2 weeks with dreadful side effects. Changed to Citalopram 3 days ago. Very tired, headache, always aware of heart beat banging and feel nausous. Is this normal and when will i feel better. ## Hello, Stoneroses! How are you? I'm sorry that you're not feeling well. Yes, those symptoms can be normal, when you stop one medication and start another. As listed by he FDA, you may also experience dizziness, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. It may take about 3 to 5 weeks on the Sertraline, before things settle down and you start to feel better. If things don't improve by then, you should consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon, feeling much better thank you. Managed to ride the storm of Citalopram and still on the...

18 years old, 3 weeks into citalopram 20mg
1 Reply RSS
Hello, I have been having episodes of what my GP said were anxiety attacks, which I thought was weird in itself since I had no major incidences in my life that may have triggered it. Anyway I have been on citalopram for 3 weeks now and I feel emotionally limited, scared to sleep, lack of appetite, low libido and generally scared of life. I really do not like them. Should I stop taking them and is this normal? ## Hello, Faz! How are you? Usually, right around 3 to 4 weeks is where the side effects hit their peak and they should taper off and stop entirely soon after that. At that point, you'll be able to tell how well it's working for you. Other possible side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dry mouth, dizziness, headache and weight changes. Thus, you m...

Are My Citalopram (Celexa) Withdrawal Symptoms Normal?
1 Reply RSS
Hi, I have been on 20mg of Citalopram (Celexa) for a year and starting to come off them. I was taking 2 x 10 mg tablets a day. So I started by alternating 2x10mg one day followed by 1x10mg the next day and alternating for a few weeks. Well that was the plan, but I felt no side effects after 3 days so figured I could go down to 10mg a day. I was on 10mg a day for about 3 days and had no withdrawal symptoms, so again figured I had this tapering stuff sorted and then decided to go to 10mg every other day. Then it hit me, I felt like I had the flu... which is my main question, people talk about side effect symptoms like brain zaps and nausea, I havent had any of those. But I feel achy and lethargic and cannot sleep. But also have a really bad cough. I have never seen anyone mention a cough ...

they are replacing my lexapro 10mg for this ## Why are they changing my Lexapro l0mg. to citalopram hbr 20 mgs. what does citalpram used for. ## What does the Hbr mean? ## Citalopram is also an antidepressant, a generic for Celexa. HBR just designated the type of drug salt. Some of the most common side effects include: drowsiness, nausea, dry mouth and sweating. ## They just replaced my Lexapro 10 milg, to the same drug Citalopram 20 mills.

Now my doc has to fight to put me back on my Lexapro. I feel this is rediculous to just change someones meds, saying its a generic, and having these horrible effects. ## Also I do not have depr...

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
49 Replies RSS
Mail order changed my citalopram manufacturer from Amneal to Aurobindo. Have noticed side effect after the change. Should this be happening? Anyone els have this issue with manufacturer change? ## JC - I haven't been taking this med, but i wanted to share with you that it IS in fact possible to experience different effects between generic manufacturers. Even though ratios of active ingredients are supposed to be the same, the inert (inactive) ingredients are allowed to differ by a certain margin. Not to mention different manufacturing standards / facilities / etc. Sometimes if you mention this to your doctor or pharmacist, they can try to obtain the product from the other manufacturer, but this does not always work - it's all about supply chain and sometimes a specific manufactu...

pink pill with ip 53

What kind of pill is this? And is it something to worry about? ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 20mgs of Citalopram. The FDA classifies this medication as an SSRI antidepressant. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. So no, it's nothing dangerous, but it does require a doctor's prescription. Is there anything else I can help with?

Starting back on Citalopram, support needed
5 Replies RSS
Hi :) I took 20 mg. of citalopram from 2006 until this past fall of 2014, for lingering postpartum/anxiety/insomnia. The drug worked wonders for me and I was afraid to come off of it until last year. Insomnia is something I'm terrified of, due to my experience with it. We had a difficult winter, I am a single mom, who does not love her work (I work part time cleaning houses in order to keep a flexible schedule for my daughter) but it has it's pros and I don't know what else interests me for work at the moment. Then I had a month of very stressful circumstances, one after another, which resulted in some anxiety/adrenalin/chest pain (ekg ruled out any problems). My doctor suggested I go back on citalopram and asked if I had a problem with it. I'd been feeling down as well ...
