Has anyone notice any effects of taking citalopram on running performance/ability?
I've been running for as long as I can remember,anything from 10K to marathon, never very fast but never as slow as since starting citalopram. I'm only on 10mg but had a couple of episodes of \"serotonin syndrome\" in the first 3 weeks and felt so tired when running - I have just no power in my legs whatsoever. And even if I think I'm \"pushing it\" - i.e. out of breath, I'm still running slowly. I did a 10K the other day and had the pick up car revving up behind me - it was so embarrassing!
I understand one of the side effects is muscle weakness, and if the muscle affected is the legs and heart then this could results in my observed effects - but will it be reversible when I come off the tablets?
