Hi all. I have just (about a week ago) come off citalopram. When initially prescribed my doctor was unsure about it and kinda left it up to me as he didn't think I was depressed - just really upset. My dad had just passed away and things were just awful with my partner then. Anyway fast forward to now and I feel much better and always felt like citalopram never really did anything for me except make me feel numb and emotionless which was horrible! So nowI've been off meds a week and side effects are awful - light headed, dizziness, fatigue, brain fuzz but worst is chronic headaches daily. I take panadol but not helping much. Anyone else experience these side effects when coming off this med? Was told the longer you are on it the longer the side effects and hence harder to come off it.
PP and the after effects are never ending!
