I was on Citalopram for over a year and I came off it in November 2016. I feel so much better not being on it and that I am not zombie like anymore and not to mention the weight gain. Now it is March and I have the worst oily skin ever. It's literally all over my face and it is making my hair so greasy and this isn't a good look. I have tried special soap bars and greasy hair shampoo but it just simple keeps coming back. It's been happening for a few months now and it's really getting on my nerves. Can anyone advise me on this and if anyone else has had a similar experience? I am guessing it is to do with hormones setting back down but how long will it go on for? I'm a 30 year old male. Thanks in advance.

I came off citalopram in June '17 and since then I've noticed a massive increase of oil in my hair and on my skin. It's getting rather annoying now as I have no way of preventing it or lessening the over production other than washing more, which in it's self is not good as it creates a viscous circle. any advice you have received would be helpful as I am now at my wits end and hate going outdoors in case I look like I've been on an all night bender or dipped my head and face in a chip pan :(
