I have been depressed and anxiety on citalopram 10mg

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi I am 38 years old and always suffered with low moods never seeker help or taken tablets before. Since being on the tablets the first week was ok but this second week I feel worse night terrors panic attacks feeling really cold inside shakiness. Dizziness, faint, heart palpitations, problems sleeping that I have never had.

I would like to find out what help people are getting for depression and whether they have had the same symptoms on citalopram as me. I suffer with reactive hypoglycemia and wondered whether it was esaporsting my symptoms??.

    Hello, I take Citalopram and never had a problem.  Please contact you doctor  as this may not agree with anything else you are taking.

    i never use meds, therapy is a better option for me - meds dont resolve issues, they can help some with effects of anxiety, but often bring their own problems. id always recommend therapy

      Thank you for your reply means alot. Yeah I was surprised when that was the first thing my Dr did, put me on meds. She didn't really make an effort to find out how I was really feeling. I will go back and see if I some therapy to help me. Thanks again.

      indeed most drs have no interest in mental health issues as they have little training, so they throw pills and hope you stay away. they would have no reason not to refer you for therapy though id hope
