    Have you been having these dreams for 18 months? Or is it just recent? Sure, sleep disturbance is a common side effect (as is vivid dreams) but should have worn off before 18 months. Maybe you've upped the dose recently and have to go through a period of re-adjustment. Involve your GP if it's intolerable.

    I didn't remember dreams before Citalopram and I don't remember them now. I sometimes wish I could but there's just nothing.

    I dont really get this. Ive got absolutely no motivation. Whne I am ok, I or I used to have some drive-but I feel zonked out( not due to the drug I dont think) its my situation.

    Anyway, for those of you who have bizaree dreams, i can now tell you when I am about to feel desperate. I have this reocurring dream. Its so vivid-and everytime I have it-its takes me hours to get over it. It stays in my mind. Most people have that one about running about at their work naked. if that was meid find it funny- youd have to laugh. or that one when you loose all your teeth and you get that insecure feeling in the pitt of you rstomach. Well, I used to get dreams about my eyes fallling out my head and poisoning people. Now I have a dream about ( well the first one was about having a baby -without any legs) . Now its reocurrs, but uts about my youngest daughter, she gets chopped in half and I cling on to her top half screaming \"its okay\" dripping her blood everywhere desperately looking for her hips and legs! Is this normal. Ad I had this drem or nightmare so many time.Then I wake up fel disturbed and just want her with me-what is this? Anyone else shared simialar experience?

    I have been on Citalopram for about 3 months now, and I have been having very vivid dreams. They are not scary in any way, but the detail and the strength of the dream is incredible, stronger than anything I have experienced before.

    Does this pass...
