I'm not from the uk but figured you guys could give me some advice about if these side effects are normal. I've taken citalopram in the past but started taking it again a week ago. I started on 10mg at bedtime for 4 days and upped my dose to 20mg 2 nights ago as I was advised to by my doctor. After starting on the 10mg the side effects went away after the first night and first night of taking 20mg i felt fine but last night was terrible. I was laying down trying to fall asleep and all of the sudden my heart started racing, I couldn't breathe, and I felt this awful burning sensation throughout my entire body. I also felt like i was going to vomit but I could barely get up to walk to the bathroom. I'm not sure if this is normal or maybe if taking 20mg is too much for me. I feel horrible today and i just want this feeling to go away. Please help
