I started taking Citalopram only 2 days ago, I read the leaflet from front to back and expected to experience some side effects in a week or so but things seem to have kicked off straight away - is this something everyone else experienced too?
The back of my tongue felt like it was twice its size last night, I have been wide awake and kind of jittery, unable to concentrate or focus (total disaster as i'm at uni and have deadlines), I feel the need to crunch down on my teeth and I have a bit of a headache and to be honest could quite easily run round my licing room doing laps for no reason - and that sooooo isn't me.
I did expect some side effects but not so many and definately not after 2 days of taking the pills.
I really need this medication, or some medication to get me through this really difficult time so don't want to throw in the towel and go back to my GP to switch to something else if this is something you guys have all been through? Did everyone else get side effects so quickly? Anyone else get the tongue thing? And how long before most of them die away?
I'm a little worried also becuase I live alone at the moment and don't want anything really bizzare to happen as no-one will know. I know I sound like a drama queen but I'm just super shocked at feeling this bizzare after only 2 days.
Thanks so so much if you read this and reply.
