I've just started taking 20mg Citalopram and we don't seem to be getting on together. Within an hour of my first dose, I felt very dizzy and was sick at work and that evening woke suddenly sweating, had pins and needles in my arms and was sick again.
A few days later I am still feeling dizzy, spaced out and bit on edge and although I'm told these unwanted effects will pass I am not sure I can wait. I don't feel safe driving and I find it very difficult to do my job feeling ill. I would prefer to be at home when I feel like this but I can't take a couple of weeks off while the effects hopefully pass.
I've been back to the GP and he said stick with it and maybe take a tablet every other day. Previously the GP did mention councilling but is this a real alternative to taking the medication? I know the waiting lists are long but I'm prepared to wait if it means getting off these tablets.
