Anybody who has came off Citalopram please tell me how long these horific side effects lasted for?
I was diagnoised with Post Natal Depression Aug. 09 after the birth of my second child (I didn't feel depressed just a LOT of anxiety).
When taking them I did have quite a few side effects, dry mouth (did subside after a couple of months) breasts leaked (sorry if TMI) and I did'nt even breast feed- this lasted up until recently when I started reducing the medication. The positive was that it did ease my anxiety but it also numbed all other emotions also TOTAL loss of sex drive (again sorry if TMI).
All in all, I wish I had never taken the things if I had have known I would feel this bad coming off them. I have terrible headaches, deja vu feelings (here but not here feeling) and so so irritable and I feel like I am having a break down or a psychotic episode, like I'm loosing it.
Please somebody tell me is this normal and will it pass or do I need to go back to my Doctor? If I do go back I will not take any psychiatric medication ever again, I feel worse than I did before I starting them!
