I wrote a review earlier but I am updating after 4 months on this drug. I was being treated for both depression and anger and this has helped immensely with both. I find myself calm, happy, rolling with the punches, and making rational decisions. I did have sexual side effects (decreased libido, prolonged "O") for a while but they went away and that has returned to normal. This is a p ... Show Full Comment

I have been on this drug for 1 week now for depression and panic attacks. I am finally starting to feel a little normal. I am less stressed and I don't worry as much. I have lost my appetite which is worrying me, but I could lose a couple pounds. I have a little blurred vision (problems focusing) but I think this will work great. I am taking 10mg.

Comment:
Citalopram has given me my life back. I suffered from depression, OCD, and anxiety since being a teenager. After the birth of my daughter a year ago, I suffered from an extreme case of postpartum depression which pushed my current case of mild depression, OCD, and anxiety off the charts. I finally sought treament last summer and started seeing major changes after 2-3 weeks taking 20mg. My curr ... Show Full Comment
