    Hi Darlene how long have you been taking citalopram ?

    My appetite went on day 1 of taking it and I've been on it for 11 weeks now. I still have no appetite but I'm managing toast or a sandwich on an evening. I've lost over 2 stone but the weight loss is slowing now.

    Hi Darlene

    Oh god I know the feeling!! It's really awful - I was like that for a few weeks when I first started citalopram, the low energy was awful but looking back it was good to lose a few pounds wink I couldn't tell you when but one day I just felt ravenous. It will come. BUT how long have you been taking them? As if it's been longer than I'd say 6 weeks and you still have no appetite it might be worth talking to your doctor.

    I do not know if you are taking other medications.

    With your tummy, see your GP

    Make that appointment
