I am 75 years old recovering from a motorcycle accident that took the life of my husband. The Dr put me on 10mg of citalopram and the side effects were aweful. Nausea ,couldn't concentrate , morning sickness symptoms, and always sleepy but couldn't sleep. At the suggestion of my pharmacist I cut back to 5mg and things are getting much better. I'm sure I will move up to 10mg in a while but starting low and slow seems to be working best for me now. The pharmacist told me that geriatric patients should always go low and slow with most meds. I'm glad I listened to him.
