Wed Dec '07 I started Citalopram (Cipramil) for the second time after being on this drug before in '06 but ceased a few weeks into taking them. I think the other AD's I was prescribed before this time had an affect on me before being put on Cipramil. This time though I am staying on these no matter what. The doc decided these were the better drug to be on. We did the little chart exam, noted my symptoms and came up with the result for Cipramil.
I have been a long time sufferer of depression for as far back as I can remember. Having chronic back pain and family troubles as a youngster I guess is the cause, but who knows. As a younger man I was once put onto Serapax but I ceased taking this after one day. Drugs have never been my choice.
Back to the Cipramil. Since being on this drug I have experienced slight tremors, muscle tensing at night, sweats, hot flushes, crazy dreams, antisocial behaviour, anxiety, constant sleeping and my skin smelling of sickly sweet apples. Not a good way to be in but I soldiered on as I am so tired of living in a world others (normal people) have never experienced. Depression is a rotten thing and something no one should live with.
For those who are experiencing side affects from their medication please see your doctor again and let him know. If he won't listen see another until you get it right. (I have a most amazing doctor who is, from the UK). Stay on your medication, eat right (fruit salad and nuts for starters as I know your diet suffers somewhat) and stay on your medication. As bad as the side affects may be, it does get better. Focus on the outcome, one day at a time. The day will come when you will start to feel better. I'm pretty sure I am
