I am new to Citalopram and antidepressants in general. I was prescribed Zoloft over a year ago and only took it for a couple weeks because the side effects made me act extremely bipolar. I tried to cope with my anxiety and worrying about everything on my own but it did not work so now I am going to be taking Citalopram. I have many reservations about medication that alters the brain. I have only taken it once (yesterday) and it made my heart race a little, I had nausea and racing thoughts and I also felt more anxiety than usual for a short amount of my night.
I am wondering if the benefits will eventually outweigh the side effects, the only thing that bothers me was the heightened anxiety. So I am wondering, is that a normal side effect and will it go away? And should I stick with it?
