About 3 and half years ago I was prescribed citalopram for depression, after a rough few months the past couple of years have been great! However upon my last check up with my doctor he changed my citalopram to Prozac due to him not liking the effect citalopram has on the heart?
Anyway I've been taking them 2 weeks, about four days ago I noticed this awful tightening in my chest and just an awful feeling something was seriously wrong with my health, I got an emergency doc appt and he checked my blood pressure, my heart and chest etc and gave me some
Tablets for acid reflux or similar .. .
Anyway for the last two days I no longer feel like myself and it's really difficult to describe, the tightening in my chest is still there, I seem to have shakes I can't get rid of and I can't shake the feeling of 'something terrible is going to happen' I haven't been able to eat properly in about three days I've nibbled on meals prepared but just have no appetite at all. I woke up this morning and got myself into a panic for no reason and ended up vomiting.
I've had bad periods of depression but have never felt detached like I do now, I just can't concentrate on anything at all. After confiding in my mother she's convinced it's due to the Prozac and asked if I could see the doctor and to stop taking them. The doctor said to continue taking them till I can see him which isn't whilst another 5 days, I'm more worried that this awful feeling is telling me something is wrong with my health or something but notice my chest tightening gets worse when thinking about worries and also feels like my hearts beating out of my chest.
Has anyone else had anything similar? I'm sorry if it's a ramble and difficult to read, thank you
