    Hya I too have been on citalopram for

    5 weeks and have no interest in anything,

    More anxiety than ever before, I am going to change mine to a different one and see if that helps. I think citalopram are meant for

    Very mild depression only as a lot of people have mentioned the same feelings whilst

    On these. I would mention to your gp the

    Way your feeling and he might suggest a

    New antidepressant instead. Hope this

    Helps take care

    Bloody Citalopram, it should settle down. It is after a ll a so called 'mild anti depressent' after all and the doses can go up to 60/80mg. So Christ knows what a heavy duty anti depressent does! Feeling spaced out and slightly bonkers is quite normal for a while, but if your mood changes to darker places....see the Dr again, quickly.
