So I’ve started taking my first anti-depressants, citalopram. I’m starting off with 10mg for two weeks and then increasing to 20mg after that. I’ve noticed online it states that common side effects include cold / flu like symptoms and insomnia, and I have been dealing with both of these ever since taking them.
Is this just a mild side effect of the medication? Or will this affect my immune system long term? My immune system is pretty good / strong so I don’t want this new medication to mess up my body. Does anyone have any experience / knowledge of citalopram and side effects? This is only the third day I’ve started taking them, and I feel very dizzy/tired, this heavy pressure in my head, headaches, sore/blocked ears, sore throat and extremely dry mouth with a horrible taste. Is this normal and harmless? Will these side effects go away once I get used to them or increase the dosage? I don’t want to feel even more awful :/.
Peace and Love,
