hi, im 29yrs old and have iv been on citalopram 20mg for 4 years and about 2 months ago i decided to try and come off them so i was on 1 20mg tablet every other day and was doing ok for about 2 weeks until i got this awful flu virus and all of a sudden i was having really bad panic attacks, Thinking i was going to die and i was actually in the out of hours and was so dizzy i thought i was going to faint so i went home and got in bed! I havnt been the same since, i went back to the gp and she reccomended that i go back on 20mg per day for a few months which 2 weeks ago i did, since then iv been missing work, sleeping loads (even when iv had 12hours sleep i fell like im so tired and go back to bed!) i wake up in the morning with butterflys and start visualising things before they happen, i feel like a zombie my head is really heavy and im not even sure weather it is the citalopram because iv been on them for 4 years or if i have something seriously wrong???? im at the stage were i feel im losing control and this is putting stress on my girlfriend because i know shes sick and tired of me saying i dont feel right, if i could get rid of the weird fuzzy feeling in my head id be able to cope but its everyday (exept when im lying in bed i feel normal and can just sleep). i must have been the doctors a million times i think they are getting sick of me aswel, i wish i could just \" o behave and pull yourself together\" like my mum says more than anything but i just cant.
