Has anyone ever used Citalopram for anxiety & experienced pins & needles in legs ?

Posted , 5 users are following.

My gp prescribed me Citalopram 10mg for anxiety/depression after some really bad anxiety attacks. I've been having pains in legs with puns & needles off and on for last few years but last few days they've been awful. I went back to go today who said it may be the tablets as they can make you worse before they start helping. ..she's said persevere for few days or stop but I feel dreadful...she's also given me diazipan to take if it gets really bad but just worried about this pins and needles plus electric shock sensations...she's referring me to a neurologist as said could be nerve issues but this could take months...any advice would be great x

    Hi Jane

    Try B12 Methyl for the nerves, it's helped me a lot.

    Good luck!
