Internal vibrations when waking

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi. I've worked my way up super slowly to 15mg citalopram. I've been on this dose for about a week now. I think my anxiety is much better. I was on Cymbalta for 10 years before this and has a horrible experience getting on a new med. Anyone one symptom that seems to be with me constantly is this internal vibrating feeling when I wake up. I HATE it. It happens if I wake from a nap too. When I get up and start moving it seems to go away. Is this anxiety or a med side effect? Do I need to increase the citalopram or will this feeling go away eventually? Anyone have any experience with this?

    Hi Cheryl, I get that two, and describe it as a buzzing and physical anxiety symptom. I am trying to work out if its a withdrawal symptom of coming off another med over a month ago or a side effect of cita as am sensitive to all meds.

    Like you it disappears when I start moving around. Am not worried about it personally and wouldnt want to take any other meds to help it. Am coming off cita soon.

    Hi Cheryl

    If you swapped vibration for burning then you describe exactly what I experienced with Citalapram. Horrible thing.

    I’ve had lots of experiences on this med. is it like a shuddering on the inside of your body? I’ve also had body jolts, which scared me and a burning sensations. I am starting to feel a bit better but it’s been a very long journey for me, coming up to a year, that’s not to say it will take that long for you. Most people recover a lot quicker. I am currently on 10mg of citalopram, I did think of increasing it many times but decided to ride it out as each time iincreased or decreased in the past I had bad side effects. It sound like your meds are working as your anxiety is better. I wish you well x
