    it can take good 6 weeks till side effects of starting the citalopram to subside. May seem like ages away, but try and ride it out and look for positive changes

      Yup, that is me to a tee. Worry myself silly over small things, and used to be a really carefree person. I am sure with all the other side effects, this will lessen too with time. I sure hope so. Good luck.
