I was recently on Citalopram 10mg (today wouldve been day 11). The only side effect I had in the first couple of days was my anxiety increased a bit. On day 8 I woke with a headache, nausea, dizziness and visual disturbance which were all constant. I rang our national healthline (I'm in NZ) and the nurse said to take day 8 dose and if symptoms don't improve go see the doctor so went to the doctor the next day. The doctor said it was unlikely due to the medication as if it was I wouldve experienced this in the first couple of days ( I thought day 8 wouldve been considered early) ive been off them since day 9 so for 2 days and I still have nausea, slight dizziness and constant visual disturbance, which almost feels like i am going to get a migraine however that doesnt happen. has anyone experienced constant visual disturbances while on citalopram? how long did it take to resolve?.and has anyone been on Cit for a short amount of time but still experience withdrawals?
Oh and I was on Citalopram back in 2008 with only the increased anxiety in the first couple of days as a side effect.
