I was prescribed Citalopram for stress and insomnia. Not depression.
My dose started at 20mg, then it was upped to 30 and I am now on 40mg a day.
I am still having trouble sleeping even after 3 months, but instead of being awake most of the night, every night I am having the occational sleepless night and generally wake up once a night every night.
But I am suffering with nausea, headaches, heart palpitasions, vommiting, and last week passed out and ended up in A&E. My Dr has referred me for a 24hr ECG and bloodpressure test. I have asked my GP if it can be the Citalopram as I only had issues sleeping with a stressful job before. Now I feel like I am falling apart.I have been told I need to stick with the 40mg a day for now, but I feel like it is starting to affect my work, and to be honest I don't feel like doing much in the evenings now as I am not feeling well.
Has anyone had any similar experiences on Citalopram? I have almost completed 3 months now.
