Posted on here a a couple of weeks ago as I was in the last phase of withdrawal from stopping taking 20mg Citalopram after one month of taking them and being made worse by them. Felt sick, dizzy, really depressed and the anxiety I was suffering with got worseso stopped taking them.
Ever since I started them and stopped my life has fallen apart.
I have put on almost 2 stone in weight through eating almost constantly. I am smoking occasionally again after being quit for almost 4 years.
I have fallen out with a few friends after saying things I would have never said to them before the medication.
I lost my job as I just couldn't function there anymore.
The only reason I started taking Citalopram in the first place is I had a slight anxiety problem. i had no other problems.
I was running 3 to 5 miles every 2 days. I had a fantastic diet. I wasn't depressed. Had a brillaint job. I looked really good by all accounts from people who know me.
Now I am a total shadow of my former self and it's all down to this horrible drug.
STAY AWAY FROM IT!
Thanks for reading.
