Go to Drugs A to Z right under where it says Drugs.com at the top of this page and look up the side effects of Citalopram. Also, talk to your Pharmacist. They always have the best information about side effects of drugs, you can even look Citalopram up in wikipedia. Is it possible you were having panic attacks. I sometimes had tingling and/or numbness in the extremies with panic attacks. If is is scaring you, talk with your doc and see if you might be able to reduce the dose. Lots of people don't understand panic disorder and how frightening it is. I haven't taken this medicine, but, I do have panic disorder and no one seemed to answer you. I read all I could on Panic disorder and took lorazepam for a long time for it. I finally went to group therapy and learned how to keep from hyperventilating when I felt an attack coming on.Really think about it and figure out what triggers your attacks and work on those areas and it should get at least a little better soon. I hope you feel better really soon.

I have also gotten tingling feeling on my limbs, not necessarily my legs, but definitely my arms and sometimes my face. According to the doctor it is a sign of withdrawl. Although Citalopram is not habit forming, the body looks for the extra seratonin so when you go a day or two without taking it the pill, your body will let you know I need that that extra seratonin.
