    Hi there, technically the chemist is correct but I like you have the same concerns and have asked my GP to prescribe me Cipramil which is the brand name NOT generic so that when I go to collect a prescription they only give me Cipramil by Lundbeck. I had a funny reaction when I was Sertraline years ago where I took them for two weeks and all was going well and then picked up another prescription and it was from another generic company, on them I had a funny rash come up and I felt nauseous. I think it's because different company use different inactive ingredients such as binders and colourings. Explain this to your GP who may prescribe you the brand name if you ask specifically, explain your situation and that you want what your consuming to be the same each time. At the end of the day no matter who they're made by they should do the same thing but better to be safe than sorry and stick with one manufacturer.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Susan

    At about the same time as you (in weeks) my nausea was bad and the shaking in a morning was a right pain! Stick it out another 10 dats or so, I found mine eased by then. The nausea for me was the worst, but my GP prescribed me something for it and I only take it when necessary. The 'funny' feelings - like tingles running up and down my legs freaked me out a bit, but it all passes. 

    I'm into week 7 & I feel SO much better! Tell yourself it's just feelings and not to be scared of them - they can't hurt you.

    Hi Susan, I have been on Citalopram 20mg for five weeks, now  and thought I was getting better, then having more bad days with one good day imbetwwen. But now, I have had three good days in a row, and getting my appetite back! Hang on in there.
