Sine my doctor put me on citalopram the headaches have been horrendous! I was on 10mg for a week and I've then upped to 20mg. Just took my second 20mg pill. The last two days since upping my dose my face right down to my lips on my right side goes numb on and off, is this normal? Tonight the pressure on the back of my head is so sore and it's worse when I lay down. It comes and goes throughout the day but while it's here it's hard to put up with. The pain seems to move around too every couple of days its shifted to another spot Anyone else struggle with citalopram and headaches? I'm on day 9 of taking them and seriously considering comming off them and just taking the propranolol (beta blockers).
