Hello All,

I wonder if anyone else gets a feeling like they have a cold coming on/heavy head,/nasally type feeling when they first get out of bed?

I feel like it takes me a couple of coffee's and about and hour before I feel like my head clears I the morning? I also have a balance disorder and am not sure which is which anymore, any answers would be a great help,

Thank you.

    I get this in the evening before bed and I have had this for over ten years.

    Sometimes with me I also have problems with my Chronic Condition and when I take my medications I need to give my medications time too work.

    I take Opiates so I understand they can cause blocked noses, of course we can look at Citalopram and that may have these problems as well. I have not picked up on that and I personally can vouch for this AD in my case, Be patient

    Hi yes I still feel slightly nasal when I wake up and I've been on Citalopram 18 days now and yes it used to take me a while for my head to get right but that's nearly back to normal now so don't worry

    Hi K7.  Until I saw our message I just thought I had a cough and cold, but I now wonder if it is symptoms of Citalopram withdrawal.  I have been trying to come off these tablets as I have had side effects worse than the feelings of anxiety.  I find this discussion group very helpfull.  Good luck
