Sever Headache day 4

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all. I'm on day 4 of taking 10mg of cert for post natal anxiety. I've not had many side effects other than nausea and fatigue, however today I have started with a terrible headache. It feels like my heads in a vice and full of pressure in my forehead. Is this a normal side effect? I'm rather worried.

    As far as I'm aware it's a common side affect of citalopram....I myself never had this side affect so I'm not sure what to take to help but hopefully the side affect won't last long xx

    As you are probabely aware there are potentially a whole raft of potential side effects with this drug.

    As you are suffering from  an increasing number of side effect may I suggest that you stay in close contact with your GP during the period and agree a course of action to be updated regularly depending on YOUR needs, Do not try and beat the drug it will only take longer to recover should the drug not suit you.

    Thank you for your reply. Today I seem to have suffered from a whole array of side effects; headache, muscle cramps, tingling hands, depressed mood, panic attack, blurred vision., I'm going to see my doctor tomorrow as I'm not sure this is the drug for me, I'm on such a low dose but feel so bad.
