Weight gain from Citalopram?

I was just prescribed Citalopram by my doctor and I'm afraid of gaining weight while on this - has anyone else noticed weight gain? ## It is quite common. I gained over 60 pounds while on 20mg of citalopram for 1 year and 4 months. The weight gain is a nightmare. EQ ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? Yes, Citalopram has been known to cause weight gain as a side effect in some people that take it, however, it has also been known to cause weight loss in some patients, so they only way to know how it will affect you is by trying it. More common side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, amnesia, and abnormal gait, according to FDA reports. Ref: Medline Plus Citalopram Did you talk to your doctor about this? There may be other medications you can try.

Citalopram Manufacturer Change

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...

Citalopram hbr 20 mg tablet effects

Pink oval antidepressant ## I recently received a refill from my mail order pharmacy for Citalopram HBR tablets, 20 mg. The first prescription I had were pink oval tablets, but this next one was round white tablets, the size of a 325mg bayer aspirin. Embossed on the tablet, from what I can make out is, WP1 3177.

Citalopram Side Effects and Withdrawal

I was on Citalopram from August 2017 to June 2018. I decided to taper off of them because I didn’t like how I felt on them. I have had a pill for just over 5 weeks now. While on the medicine, I was definitely less panicked. However, I had a pretty constant feeling of being out of it, like being drugged or spaced out. I had this before I started the medicine so I was hoping it would help. The other really bad symptom I had was this weird dizziness and vertigo. I was dizzy before I started, but a few weeks in I remember I had rapid feeling in my head before bed like my head was moving. This turned into an awful vertigo sensation that hits hard when I lay down. It feels like I’m spinning or my body parts are moving or being pulled, and makes it hard to sleep sometimes. Anyway, ...

She takes a list of medicines: Bupropion, Lisinopril, Atorvastatin, Citalopram, Carvedilol, Omeprazole, and 81mg Aspirin; she must take anywhere from 2-4 pills per medication daily. She sweats a lot, drinks plenty of water daily, doesn't eat much, and is trying her best to perform daily tasks due to her 5th shoulder surgery and heart valve replacement surgery. Any help would be appreciated. I don't want her to keep stressing over this without answers. ## My grandmother went to the pain clinic the day after I posted this question, she took with her a jump drive...

Citalopram oily greasy skin

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.
