So, I am prescribed 20mg of Citalopram daily. My doctor told me to take it at night to avoid side effects...even though it keeps me up at night (my sleeping habits weren't that good anyways). But he also prescribed 0.5mg of Xanax as needed for sleep or other symptoms. Anyways, I am a sous chef at a restaurant so I was dreading going back to work after starting this SSRI.
Today, after my second night of Citalopram, I woke up with a nervous feeling all over my body. I told my girlfriend that it felt like butterflies in your stomach, but all over my body. I wasn't really freaking out, just a little irritated because I knew I couldn't miss work on a weekend. I got up, moved around and it went away. I went to work feeling "okay", just mildly tired and a little spaced out. Overall, day two wasn't too bad! I just got home from work and took my third pill. What's bothering me is that it's giving me "hyper" energy sometimes...now I've done adderall as young person, never any hard drugs like coke, but I really don't like the feeling. It's not that my heart races, but I just feel jittery. That's another reason I took caffeine out of my diet because it would make me feel weird.
Just giving everyone an update for anyone else who's just starting!
