Hi hope your feeling ok, I took citalopram through abit of my pregnancy and then the doctor reduced it and took me off it when I was around 18-20 weeks, I was told to go back if I wasn’t coping etc. I was a nightmare when I was pregnant, but I don’t no if that’s because I wasn’t getting the proper support or if I wasn’t sure how to deal with it, dizziness was one of my biggest symptoms, sometimes still is. Could be low blood pressure with you being pregnant or anemic, you will have bloods to check for things like that soon. Do you have a counsiler? Make sure you’ve got support around you, someone who you can talk to etc

Try not to worry, your doctor will talk you through the meds and things, and get support of your family and midwife x
