I have been on Citalopram for 12 years most of that time on 10mg. About 6 months ago I decided to see what I would be like coming off it. I did it very gradually after reading on the Forum 3 weeks on 3/4 2 weeks on 1/2 3 weeks on 1/4 and then none at all. I felt fine with no side effects. I felt ok for a couple of weeks and then started getting irritated and angry about everything. Felt really gloomy and in a black mood and despondent. I lasted 3 months and then just couldn't deal with the moods and bad temper and decided to start again. They really do make a difference and as much as I'd like not to take them I feel I need them to keep my life balanced and sane.
What I want to ask if there are people on Citalopram who have problems with restless legs? I have suffered with this for years now and it drives me crazy and keeps me awake for hours at night. When I was off the drug they were definately improved and I hardly had restless legs at all.
So could it be connected to Citalopram? Also I developed uncontrolled itching, mostly at night. It can be anywhere on my body and no real reason for it: no allergies, no skin rash, not insect bites. Some nights it also keeps me awake and there is no relief from it. Even showering at night does not stop it. Just wondered if anyone else has these problems?
