    FIRST, the best way to take this medication is at bedtime, as it really does make a person tired in the morning (though I know not everyone is the same). I have to agree with many on the fact that it is VERY hard to try to get off of this medication. Unfortunately, for me I am better staying on ot. I use it because I just feel out of control when I am not taking it and a cry easily when not on it. ... Show Full Comment

    I just started taking citalopram 20mg for depression. So far only side affect is severe nausea but seems to be tapering off but mood seems to be getting happier. I will come back in a few weeks with new review.

    Starting taking this drug after heart bypass surgery in 2012. I was diagnosed with depression after the surgery, apparently it is rather common especially in men after a major event such as surgery. It took a while, but is has been helping. Hopefully I wont have to continue taking it for the rest of my life

    When I first started taking citalopram, I had dry mouth and night sweats, but those side effects weren't too bad.
