So far I've taken 6 pills of citalopram 20mg. My doctor told me she wanted me to do some research on this medicine and I found this website. On some papers I got from the pharmacy with my medicine, it says that its more common for people younger than 25 to experience worsening depression, other mental/mood symptoms, or suicidal thoughts/attempts. This really worries me. Later in the papers it also says that "Children may be more sensitive to the side effects of this drug, especially loss of appetite and weight loss." Which also worries me. I do not have a scale at my new house, and when I went to the doctor when they weighed me I had lost ten pounds not on the medicine, and if I loose ten more I'll be considered underweight going by my BMI. I was wondering if any of you have taken this at a young age or know someone that has and what side effects they experienced, if any. The first few days of taking it I was a little nauseated, but I haven't been the past two days. I've been more tired then usual, and maybe have had blurred vision. I do not know for sure if the vision is connected. To my knowledge these are the only effects I've experienced so far.
Also, In these papers it says the maximum dosage is 40mg a day. I've read on here of people taking more. Is it only where I live?
