restlessness and restless legs on citalopram

Hi i started cit nearly 5 wks ago and have gradually gone up from 10, 20, 25 and the last 3 days 30mg, ive had lots of awful side effects which r gradually passing slowly! my biggest prob is the restlessness i feel in the morning......i wake up with restless legs (my legs r literally moving like mad) and for about 3 hrs im sooooooo restless and if i sit down then my legs r just moving constantly, its particulary bad today but this maybe cause i just upped from 25mg to 30mg 3 days ago! has anybody else got this? as ive said in previous posts my anxiety is still v bad in the mornings and today i was retching yet again doc has given me some anti-nausea pills which helped yeaterday morning but not today??

Re: restlessness and restless legs on citalopram

I got very restless when starting cit and although it settles it seems to cone back with dosage increases, it does settle back down though and you've increase a fair bit in just 5 weeks, give your body time to adjust
