I've been on citalopram for 10 days, just upped from 10mg to 20mg on weds and now have at least 12 mouth ulcers, so painful I can't eat. have googled and found one link that says it could be due to the dry mouth caused by ADs - anybody else had this problem? not sure if it's the ADs or generally run down.

I didn't have ulcers when upped to 20mgs of Citalopram but I did find mouth was very dry so I should imagine that combined with feeling run down has contributed to it.

Speak to a pharmacist and get a good mouth wash recommended for mouth ulcers - apparently it helps to get rid of them. Hope they go soon and you feel better from upping the AD dose
