Citalopram ( blocked ear after taking one )

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hey

I’m on day 6 of taking 10mg if citalopram. All is going well considering the amount of potential side effects listed. However, has anyone experienced an immediate full feeling in their ears after taking them. I get it every single time it’s bizarre. It does eventually go away but I just wondered if this is common and if anyone else had experienced it? 

Thank you 😊

      Oh good, I’m glad I’m not the only one. It’s the weirdest feeling. It’s probably something to do with my blood pressure maybe. How long did yours last for? 

      Ps thank u for your reply.

      I’ve had dizzy spells since starting citalopram. If I get up to quick or something I get a fuzzy head and have to stand still for a while until it goes away. It’s pretty unnerving but I think it will go eventually. I’m just going to persist with the citalopram. I have to go back to the doctors in a few weeks so he can see how I am getting on so I guess any side effects that i experience I will share with him then. Hope your dizzy spells taper off soon. 

      Are you taking citalopram? 

      Since staring this medication I have learnt that over half of the women that I work with are also taking it. It’s crazy how much it’s needed now a days. I never thought I’d ever need help with anxiety. This has been a real shock to my system.

    I was prescribed this 10mg drug to try & curb anxiety however after being on the drug for a good few years now, I feel my anxieties are returning but not as bad as It first was. Do these drugs come in different strengths.

      Yes Tam1888 they come in 10mg, 20mg 30mg and 40mg. They usually prescribe 10mg for just anxiety or panic disorder and then if you have depression then they go higher. Although anxiety and depression go hand in hand sometimes. I’ve only been experiencing this anxiety for 4 weeks but it made me incredibly ill physically hence why I have been put on citalopram 10mg. Hoping it’s just for a few months whilst I get through this tricky patch. I’m also going to CBT soon as well.

      Sarah like I said I have been on 10mg for a good few years now & have zero side effects. It did work for my anxiety which is mostly brought on by motor way driving & driving over bridges however these anxieties are slowly returning & I am going back to the docs to see if the dosage can be upped to perhaps 20mgs.
