Hello. Just want to see if anyone else has experienced this on Citalopram.
I took Citalopram 10mg for 13 years and went through a point with severe anxiety so my dr switched me to 25 mg of Sertraline. I did very well on it for 4 years until recently. I have severe anxiety and depression because of the anxiety.
So today is my 10th day on 10 mg of Citalopram and I am super lightheaded throughout the day. It scares me because I feel like I am going to pass out bit I don't. I called my dr and pharmacists and they say it's a very common side effect of Citalopram. Also, my therapist says it comes with high anxiety too. The side effects I have are heightend anxiety and lightheadedness. I do have a claw cane to use for stability.
And yes my blood pressure is always good when I go to the dr.
If anyone else struggles with this please respond. I need reassuring that it's just a side effect and when will it go away?
