Re: Does Citalopram initially make you worse?
Hi. Yes, Citalopram does make you feel worse before it makes you feel better unfortunately, especially when being used to treat anxiety and panic. I am on Day 8 of my Citalopram journey and the side effects I have had are tingling legs and hands, head zaps, nausea and loss of appetite, total lack of energy, sleep disturbances, muscle aches and worst of all a huge increase in my anxiety for which I have been given Diazepam while my body adjusts. I would just like to say that although the side effects are unpleasant they ARE bearable and it has got to be worth a try if it gets rid of the anxiety beast in the long run. I am feeling so excited that this drug might make me better and I don't know what I'm going to do if it doesn't? Please give it a try as it might change your life for the better, and if it really doesn't agree with you, you can always try something else!
