Swapped medication

Posted , 4 users are following.

I e been on citalopram 20mg for 13 years for anxiety. Recently I became really depressed and my go swapped me to 50mg sertraline. 8 weeks down the line and I'm suffering with really sore achy muscles and joints in my big toes and my right shoulder. I don't know if this is linked but it's so painful I'm finding the motivation to exercise almost impossible which then doesn't help my mental health. Has anyone else experienced anything like this after stopping citalopram?
