hi to all,my very first day on citalopram .allready i feel weird.i am a nurse of 27 years so i allways read the leaflet that comes with the medication. i am feeling not quite here,which isnt the same as dizzy! a lot of medication give the same side effects as the illness you are taking them for!like these can CAUSE depression,mood swings,dark thoughts etc,so how do you know if they are working,cos i am taking the tablets for those exact reasons!my mouth is dry and tastes metallic..was anyone else scared at the first day,plus my doctor has put me onto 20mgs straight away,whereas most people started on 10 and then moved up.i am trying not to anticipate problems,but i react to all my medications,and im hoping not to react to these ,trying to be positive,but that is part of my problem..ive become so pessimistic!!aaargh,.i dint expect this page,and its a bonus,we arent alone.so thankyou to everyone who writes on here,got a feeling im going to be a frequent visitor. i will say that as an ex nurse i saw the strength of people and what they could overcome.so...here i go!!!
