      hi Lois

      thanks for your reply, do you think it is likely to get worse each time i lower the dose ,

      thanks for asking about my joint pain this has eased off a bit actually but does increase again each time i lower my dose it always seems like i am moaning about citalopram but i am genuinly pleased it helps some people and hope you are getting on ok with it

      thanks Lois

      yes iam feeling quite lovely on cit.iam glad your joint pain is somewhat subsiding.the only side effect i was left with was tinnitus but that is also subsiding slowly but it is less and less as the months fly by.

    Hi Steve. I have exactly the same problem, it does vary from time to time and has been the case for 3 years. I have been back to the Drs , but they have looked at me as if I was making it up. Have tried to come off them, from 20 - 10 and leaving them for a week or 2, never again. Back on the track with them for a couple of months now, my eyes are playing up now. Gritty, painful , blurred vision, eye drops do very little. Went for eye check up, no problem. Told optician about vision and he just gave me a list of eye drops from cheap to expensive and just said see whats best for you. Just going to leave my meds for a short while to see if it is still them causing the problem. Then try the Dr yet again. Citalopram is my meds.
