    Damo - call EmDoc right now! I had the most awful feeling of being "unbalanced" and it freaked me out so much I just stopped taking it!

    Good Luck!

    Hi

    I had tinnitus before taking citalopram, since then it has got louder and different tones. I just got use to it. Haven't got a clue if it goes after a while but everyone is different. It is listed as one of the side effects though.

    I am weaning myself of cit per my Dr's instruction, because I too have developed tinnitus since taking cit. I'll see if the tinnitus stops then. I have 5 more days til I'm off cit. I hope it works.
