Hi there

and nice to meet you, well i have been taking this medication now for 3 weeks and to be honest for the past few days i have felt great and like my oldself again!

When i started to take it i did notice that my appetite did decrease and i did lose weight, i also felt dizzy and sick and too have a baby to look after 4 months old, how long have you been taking it for?

I've been taking them about 3 1/2 weeks, felt rather tired at the start and a bit sick but that's all gone now and I feel much more under control again. No weight loss though - I was really hoping for that particular side effect too!

Hi, I've thken citalopram for a few years now for chronic anxiety/depression. I felt really rough on them for about 6 weeks but then slowly started to feel better and now I feel great, have no side affects at all

hi everyone,i have suffered for 12 years with anxiety and always tried to cope myself but lately thye have got worse due to a new relationship,moving house and the children moving schools and stuff, i got prescribed citalopram three days ago and hours after i took the first pill i noticed a change,the feeling of dread i got in my stomach before i got the attack was gone i felt weird but over the moon as that was the worste part of the anxiety. i had a feeling of hyper which was quite funny and i had the best sleep in years. i didnt expect the pills to work right away but i feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. my appatite is not too good but i make myself eat as i know i have to, i cried on the second day as i saw that i was feeling much better and realised how silly i had been over the past few months with feelings of suicide and worthlessness, why i didnt go and talk to my doctor before this i dont know but im glad i did and im all for citalopram i think they are great for anxiety
