Wow you have had a very extreme reaction, I've never heard of citalopram doing that before. However it does do some strange things so perhaps it has just exaggerated what you were already feeling? I started on citalopram too and have to say it was the worst drug I have ever experienced. Massively increased anxiety, dry mouth, sickness, shaking, mania I even rang NHS direct as I was so bad on it. It took a good few days to get out of my system after I stopped taking it.
I am now on lithium and mirtazapine. The mirtazapine has been great for me, it's really helped with my sleeping too. No dry mouth and I think it's helped with anxiety too.
Hope it works for you and you start feeling more yourself.
