    Hi Nancy,

    Yes it will subside slowly. As for me it slowly subsided. I also had insomnia during that time. Good luck keep us posted of how you are.

    Ive been on 20mg Citalopram for 7 weeks now.  The many side effects including frequent urinating have subsided.  Hope you feel the benefits soon.

      Thank you for the encouragement. I'm using oxytrol patches to help control it. I went off my meds in Feb, around late April all hell broke lose. I've lost 28 lbs throughout this ordeal, hard to eat. The frequent urination doesn't help. Been on cit for 2 weeks now, hoping it subsides soon. How long did it take yours to start to go away? I also have a bladder problem anyway, which doesn't help. Thank you for sharing

      So for me the side effects began to wear off after 3 - 4 weeks, certainly got a lot better in that time if not totally removed.  I'd definitely keep with them as you should feel it ease soonsmile
