How Has Citalopram Helped You?
Posted 11 August 2010 - 07:34 AM
Everyone is always talking about the negative side effects to citalopram. I've recently and finally began taking it regularly and truly i've never felt bad side effects unless i don't take it for a couple days. To help me continue taking the medicine, as i've in the past taken it for a few weeks then just stopped, i'd like to know your positive experiences with the medicine? How has it helped you?

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.

I've had a positive experience with the medication. I didn't realize that I was ill for so long. I was making everyone as miserable as I was and scared myself silly when I had some heavy dark clouds come my way and consume me. My doctor started me out on 10mg, then 20mg, and then to 40mg. At 40mg, I am a wonderful functioning human being and everyone around me has noticed a positive difference.

This is completely what it's like. I felt my chest tightening when I was anxious and depressed. My mind wouldn't stop thinking and worrying, like a hamster in a wheel it would spin and spin and spin at night instead of sleeping. I would think myself into a frenzy or anxiety attack. I would melt down at the drop of a hat and never knew when I would be functioning again. I was completely anti-medication because of being on other medications in my teen years. Thankfully; I tried Citalopram and it has been the absolutely perfect drug for me. I feel like I can be me again. I will definitely stay on it!

I was a bit worried to go on such medicatin at the beginning fearing some side effects on my sex life...
But actually nothing as such happened to me :-)
Life is slightly more pink with this.. I am surely more relaxed with it and can concentrate as well much more
