    Im not sure of your exact question 60mg is a fairly high dose in fact the highest has ur doc prescribed this

    40mg is the maximum dose for Citalopram in the UK.  If you took this just the once back on the 8th August and you're ok still, then all should have passed by now.  You should only stick to the prescribed dose and discuss this with your doctor.

    Hello Pragya,

    ​Oh my, that is a very high dose!  The highest dose in the U.S. is 40 mg. a day.  I think you should call your doctor, and tell them what you are doing.  Your doctor needs to know how much you are taking.  You must be very careful with these medications, as they are very strong, and only take them as your doctor tells you.  You must not take more at your own will, unless your doctor tells you it is ok.  The side effects of this medication can be very strong on the low doses, I have no idea what 60 mg could do to a person.  I would be VERY careful to not do this again until you talk to your doctor though!!  I wish you good luck, but please be very careful!!
