I know I keep seeing tons of negative feedback about this drug on this forum. But I for one am really starting to love the way I feel & who I am lately on this medication. I just feel much more relaxed & I'm not freaking out over odd little things every day of my life. There are annoying side effects for me too. But they are so worth the benefits to me. The first few weeks were nerve wracking. I had the shakes, felt nervous. Felt dizzy & tired/groggy after taking it. It's week 6 now & I still wake up at 2-3 am & can't go back to sleep some nights. But started taking Tylenol PM & it is working! So now I've solved that problem. Another problem is, I cannot "get off" (have an orgasm) with my husband AT ALL! This has never been a problem for me, so it's weird & I know it's the medication. We'll just have to keep trying to find a solution to that and the last side effect that is hard for me is alcohol! I cannot drink too much on this without turning into a psycho! Seriously, 2 beers is the limit for me or else it's a roller coaster, nightmare, spiral! But those 3 annoyances are things I am willing to deal with & try to figure out because of how great I feel during my days now. I also stopped smoking cigarettes completely after 10yrs of smoking a pack a day!! I don't know how, or why? I guess I'm just not nervous or anxious anymore so I don't want them? So strange but I'm so much happier in general! Anyone else actually find taking Citalopram worth it? Let me know!
