My partner has been on citalopram 20mg for 4.5 weeks and has now decided to reduce his dosage to 10mg as he has had unbearable burning sensations through his body. His depression and anxiety has also gotten worse and has had suicidal thoughts every morning that he never had before starting these medications. He describes the burning as someone pouring hot acid into his chest that spreads throughout his whole body. This gets even worse at night time when he is trying to sleep. Wakes him up at least 3 to 4 times a night and whenver he wants to have a nap. Does anyone else experience this?He has previously been on this medication for depression 15 years ago and never experienced anything like this before. He is getting off the medication as advised by his psychiatrist. Will this burning stop when the citalopram leaves the system?
