I was put in citalopram 10 mg about a week ago. Did not go as I thought it would... the side effects ugh!! Started with migraine, face numbness and then the not sleeping well.. oh and then came the hot flashes when I thought my body was on fire.. Thos migraines tho wow! I called my dr because my face arm and foot went numb.. they told me to stop taking it... so I did! I was only on it for 5days. It’s been two days headaches are getting better but still there, numbness is subsiding but now my face and arms feel cold... will the side effects ever end? I was hoping to find someone with an experience like mine.. I thought it was awful and I hope I feel normal soon!

    I had the same but much milder. I started off with 5mg 6 weeks ago I’m now on 20mg and no side effects every time I upped it. After the first week at 5mg.

      Pray you do too... I too have bad stress and anxiety.. I was really hoping the meds would have worked... I think my daily migraines add to my anxiety and probably what causes a lot of them.. praying for a normal feeling again soon!
