Hi Linda, perhaps this is interesting for you. After starting treatment with SSRI it will take some weeks to be effective. There is a lot of research about SSRI and Interferon induced depression.
I feel quite positive at the moment because the ADs I've used in the past had horrendous side effects for me and so far the only thing I've noticed is being drowsy, dizzy and my mind is racing a bit... although I heard that they can trigger mania so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Also I have to see the same GP in two weeks [or before if I have any serious suicidal thoughts] and she will be referring me to a psychiatrist.
There are physical side effects and there are psychological side effects. My husband took Citalopram throughout his triple tx, and it helped a lot. I also tried to get him to drink extra water and go outside for a walk every day. That seemed to help. Insomnia can also be a problem, so when my husband couldn't sleep, he got more anxious and depressed as well. His hepatologist added a small dose of Trazadone at bedtime.
they are pretty well known to cause some significant side effects, especially during the intial treatment phase. Some side effects can be serious, such as an increase in suicidal thoughts. Also, most of these meds cause SOME degree of a withdrawal syndorme when discontinuing them....some can be pretty significant and debilitating. Also, there is also always a risk of a person having an adverse reaction to any new med....and some allergic reactions can be very serious, if not life threatening.
sore scratchy eyes, green gunky stuff floating around, my eyes sting when i close them , puffy especially in the morning, the inside of my bottom eye lid is extremly red and puffy to the point when i pull my eye lid down theres a certain part of my eye lid that will roll out from underneath my eye ball and with it comes alot of the green gunk.
ONE important thing to remember that I learned, and have never forgotten is that these two effects CANNOT exist without anxiety.....but that anxiety can exist without these sensations. Derealization is basically a change, an alteration in the PERCEPTION or experience of the external world....in other words...everything LOOKS very strange, very "unreal" (movie like, in my experiences). Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality of one's self. So the difference is...
These, I think you will have to agree, are pretty devastating side effects for a single drug to have. When you get your antidepressant dispensed to you by your friendly Community Pharmacist there will be, tucked inside the box, a Patient Information Leaflet. This is an EU or FDA generated document that is supposed to mean something. It is supposed to impart at least some useful information. Let’s look at it for Prozac then, the most popular antidepressant of them all.
I kinda got freaked out when I googled Celexa (Citalopram) Some people reported quite a few side effects that didnt sound so good. ( Nausea, Dry mouth, not being able to sleep at night but staying really groggy during the day. PLEASE if anyone knows anything about this anti depressant I really would love to hear your opinion.
i did some research on citalopram and the side effects are crazy! psoriais is one of them but rare. however i havnt taken a citalopram in a week so how long should i wait for the effects to go heres this list of effects this drug has i canr beleave its legal..
I feel like I am wearing a glove and a tight sock on the right side (but sort of like that over the whole side, including my face and head). Even the inside of my mouth and tongue are affected. It effects the way I walk as I can't feel the ground beneath my foot properly so constantly in fear of falling over. I suffer terrible migraines with the pain centering around the right temple. I feel mildy dizzy all the time with vertigo at times.
My eyes do not roll totally up, just as far as they will go naturally. As a result of the eye symptoms, my doctor prescribed me Citalopram. This has little effect on the eyes. However, unusually Cogenten (Benztropine) helps relieve the eye symptoms. There are a number of extrypyramidal effects with this drug though. The panic or photosensitive eyes last from anywhere between 1 hour and 8 hours.
I have been on citalopram for several years, and have not had many side effects until now. The symptoms are bad enough to interrupt my sleep.
I thought Adderall was a god-send for about 4 months and then it turned into living hell! I have suffered permanent side-effects from it and every dose eventually lost it's potency and I had to go to the next dose. I absolutely refuse to keep upping my dose, so now I'm actually asking my doctor to lower it so I can get off of it. It will make you feel fantastic for awhile and will seem to cure every thing that you've complained of,...but maybe just for a few months.
This should be taken as prescribed because it has a tendency to be habit-forming. Unfortunately, possible side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, fast heart rate,skin rash, upset stomach, and headache (reference:http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a682578.html) To rule out if your symptoms are possibly related to this medicine, check with your doctor and shift to other prescribed medications. Take care and do keep us posted.
I noticed quite a few of the symptoms you are experiencing are side effects of Citalopram. One of the rare side effects of Citalopram is difficulty with concentrating, some less common side effects are blurred vision, confusion, loss of memory and headaches. I remember you saying you have been taking Citalopram for about 3 months. That's a fairly long time to be exposed to the drug and consequently the side effects of the drug. Well, I guess that is all for now.
Sandee had some very good advise but to make it easier on you, you should list them and call your local Pharmacist or even the Doctor who prescribed her last prescription and discuss the possible side effects from all. If the medications are all from one Doctor then I wouldn't worry so much. He/She is certian in what they are doing and knows what has been prescribed. It is good that you're keeping an eye on her. Please make that call to re-assure yourself.
However once it did I found Lamictal more effective than lithium on mixed states and it was more tolerable than lithium as regards cognitive side effects, sedation and the like and did not require monthly blood tests. I do know that Lamictal is more effective on depression than mania and for some people that's helpful and for others its a drawback but each person responds differently to each medication.
The side effects may vary for others, but I have had up to four drinks at one time and experienced no side effects. I suggest that you contact either your physician or your local pharmacist.
They both block panic attacks quicker than the antidepressants, often in a week or two. They also tend to have fewer side effects than the antidepressants. Both, however, can have withdrawal symptoms as you taper off them. Because alprazolam is quicker acting than clonazepam, its withdrawal effects can be stronger as well. In studies on panic disorder, 43% of patients on alprazolam improved after eight weeks on less than 4 mg per day, and 30% get better on 4 to 6 mg per day.
So what I'm seeing here, Matthew, is someone who is doing, on the whole, quite well. You're on week 8 of the citalopram with virtually no side effects, or they have passed. You have good days and some not so good days. Join the crowd. If you are having more good than not so good days, that's great and it will just keep getting better. The other morning you awoke with some blurry vision, which you more than likely diagnosed correctly as eye strain and tinitis, which you say you've had before.
You had a sock and I think that you are trying to resolve it.You have to relax,why dont you try a psycologist instead of a psychytrist? Maby you don't need medication but a good therapy session.
maybe someone who is wondering might see something they havnt tried yet and could ask their doc about it.
I suffer from very high levels of anxiety and panic attacks im constantly getting pains in chest and left arm it really frightens me ive had ecg and holter monitet done abd everything was fine im constantly at the doctors looking for reasurrance i could end up at the doctors 3 to 4 times a week i also think im a hypochondria dose any one else get th constant arm and chest pain even when you dnt feel anxious i would realy like to hear from u as im really scared
gradually to 20 mg but I am resisting taking it as I am scared about the side effects worrying they will worsen my symtoms. Life is very hard and I am a wreck, tired going to the doctors. I have a mild spondylitis and very bad neck and shoulder pain, been to a chiropractor for a month and it helped. But it comes back again. I feel tense, irritable, with headache each time I take my medication during the day.

You mention in your OP that you were wondering if the twitching could be related to side effects of meds you had taken in the past. That was the first thing I wondered. Depending on what meds you were on and for how long, that absolutely could be the cause. Can you share what you had been taking prior to the twitching starting? As for the Celexa, you weren't on it long enough to determine whether or not it would have helped you.
I have a long history of depression and anxiety and had been placed on Paxil about a year before the high BP started. I had bad side effects from the Paxil and several other SSRIs I tried, so about a year ago I tapered off them. I immediately began having nightmares and panic attacks in my sleep, and did not realize that my BP was extremely high during these events until I had a cerebellar hemorrhage. Luckily, I lived and had no long term effects from the hemorrhage.
