I just read your comments that you wrote awhile ago. I took Zoloft a long
time ago. I only took the Zoloft for two days because I felt really sick on
the Zoloft. I had terrible side effects from the Zoloft. Here are some of
them extreme nervousness, heart palpations, bizarre nightmares, nausea,
all in all it was a terrible experience. I went to my doctor after the second
day and told her that I wanted to get off the Zoloft and she prescribed
another medication for me. I've heard Wellbutrin which is an antidepressant is a good choice because it has the least number of side
effects. I hadn't heard of Citalopram before today. So, you probably know
this drug is an antidepressant.
Possible side effects of Citalopram
Nausea/vomiting/indigestion - common
Diarrhea/constipation - common
Anxiety/Insomnia - rare
Headache/tremor - rare
Dizziness/drowsiness - rare
Dry mouth/ sweating - rare
Sexual dysfunction - rare
Skin rash - rare
* Do not stop the drug without consulting your doctor.
Stopping abruptly can cause withdrawl symptoms.
Hope this information has been helpful. Good luck to you. Eve
I would not recommend Zoloft. On another Depression web site, there's a long thread about how bad the withdrawal symptoms are from it. I have chronic pain and I've done the opiate withdrawal and IT *****! I would like to get off my pain meds but it's either just been too hard or I have too much pain. Can't win, but less would be better.Therefore, the Zoloft my PCP doc recently prescribed I am not going to take.....took it for a week and then saw those posts! Wow! Don't worry, I'm going to talk to him about it.
