I have been on citalopram for 5 weeks now and Ive been aware of my heart beating all the time. On Tuesday night I had a really bad episode where my heart beat really hard all night, it was really frightening and I just didnt know what to do. Even when i slept for a bit i woke up and it was still pounding.
I went to the doctor and she said it could be a side effect of citalopram. Has anyone else had this from citalopram and how long did it take to wear off?
The doctor said i may have to come off them if it continues, but i dont want to cos ive been on them before and they helped me so much!
If anyone else had this please let me know what u did
