I have been taking this drug for 7 years or around that. I love it. I was a mess, It has helped me contol my anixaty I started out at 20 mg and now at 40 mg. Because it has made me feel so much better I will not go off of them. I have a very depressive life of ups and downs PTSD. a car accident with head injury and everthing in between. This drug is not suppose to make you gain weight. A lot of times when you are shaky is because your body is telling you eat protein. I am never going off it because it make me feel so much better. ## i have been taking 40mg for around 3years, have trouble with sweating at night and don't have as much energy as i use too..

Tinnitus and Depramil or Citalopram
2 Replies RSS
Can the use of Depramil or Citalopram lead to tinnitus? ## Hello, Lestie! How are you? Yes, that can be a side effect of this medication, as reported by the U.S. FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. How long have you been taking it? If it's been over 4 to 5 weeks and you're still experiencing it, you may need to switch to a different medication, with your doctor's approval. ## Hello there and thank you for your reply. Yes I have been taking it for some 6 months now (Depramil), though I understand that Depramil is a generic. When I started I took Auro Citalopram and I did not experience any bad side effects. Just recently (say 4 weeks or so) I have had 'vague' tinnitus. It is a quiet hum that I tend to forget when I am c...

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
70 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...

Hello I'm Doug. I'm looking for a manufacturer of citalopram 20 mg that has polyethylene glycol 4000 or better in it ! Would love to try the 8000.... Drs or pharmacist don't have the time nor the resources to figure it out grrrr... Caraco doesn't make it anymore... And I have researched it myself for a while now!!!! I have also found that apotex doesn't make it any more also. grrrr :-P would love some help or suggest a data base that's up to date!

Right dose of citalopram
1 Reply RSS
8 weeks ago my mom was given 10mg citalopram for anxiety. she did not feel any side effect in the first week but afterwards starting having insomnia, upset stomach, tremor, agitation, etc. The psychiatrist increased teh dose to 20 mg daily but this did not solve anything. Today, in the 8th week she could not sleep at all in the night (she felt fresh when going sleeping even she was working the whole day) and in the morning she is feeling needles in the whole body, she is shaking + many other bad feelings. Can be that the dose is too high for her age (74 years old)?. I am afraid not to be the symptoms of a high level of serotonin. ## Those can all be side effects of Celexa. Insomnia is a classic side effect, though some people get sleepy from SSRI's. Seems to depend on the person. Th...

They will want to rule out other causes and if it is the medication, you may need to try something else.
