It's an uncommon side effect and it's not usually a very pleasant "high". Add to that that antidepressants can cause a multitude of other side effects... nausea, vomiting, headache, insomnia, diarrhea or constipation, etc.
A sit down is in order. Not only is this dangerous it's also illegal. Where did she get it?
"Uncommon (0.1% to 1% of users): Aggressive reaction, delusion, depersonalization, drug dependence, emotional lability, euphoria, hallucination, mania, panic reaction, paranoid reaction, psychosis, psychotic depression"
Best regards and good luck with her.
Citalopram can absolutely get you high/euphoric. I switched from sertraline to 20mg citalopram and 2 hours after I took the tablet I experienced a high which lasted 8 hours. I was taken to the emergency room because my euphoria was uncontrollable, my heart rate was really high and my pupils were dilated. The doctors carried out an MRI to see if I had a brain infection and also gave me blood tests, all of which were clear. Antidepressants are not “supposed” to make you high or contain any chemicals which can make you experience euphoria but from my experience, it is absolutely possible. I’ve not heard of many cases like mine but it is clear that different people may have a different response to certain drugs. The majority of people who use celexa based antidepressants don’t usually experience a high but I did and it is possible and I know other people probably have reacted in a similar way.
I’ve been taking this for 3 or 4 years and for me all it does is reduce anxiety, the reason it was prescribed.
I do find it hilarious the comment about the original poster asking the question as being accused of being a stoner trying to find something new to get high on and not whom they portray themselves to be in the question.
If they know how to post a question here they should know how to look up the drug and read the potential/possible side effects if they are just looking for a new substance to get high from.
I can’t believe how cynical we have become seeing ulterior motives around every corner.
Seems like something you might wanna sit down and talk to your daughter about. I am on 20mg of citalopram, and started last month. The first week of consumption i would get a "tripy" kinda feeling. I would be completely zoned out from reality, and lost in my own world. I hope this helps.
I've recently have started taking citalopram and I would say there is some sort of change in feelings at emotions would not class it as a"high" though.
I started taking them to help with depression and anxiety as I was doing to Many drugs, at a stretch the effects feel somewhat like a real minor mdma buzz all day but only a tiny bit.
Would highly recommend u speak to ur daughter about taking these tho as they mess with ur head even if u do have depression or anxiety and taking multiple to get that "high" is a very easy way to overdose
I am currently taking citalopram 10 mg for my anxiety and depression, if you are going to approach her about it. She could have gone to a youth clinic or doctor to seek advice and got prescribed that medication for a good reason and confronting it could drastically make things worse.
As for the high portion, 10mg doesn't really get you high, it makes you not really want to stay up late/sleep in too late.
Hope this helped.
I used to take citalopram, and it ruined my life. It got me so high for months during the day and by night I was on the floor crying my eyes out. I couldn't stop moving, my teeth kept grinding and I was having feelings of euphoria that I have never even come close to before or since. I couldn't stop talking and I had almost no control over myself. I lost almost all my friends and once I came off it, was left with a few months of my life where I cringe about every thing I did and said.
Ok, so you are saying this really is some guy that is lying, and he fooled people, but how were they supposed to know that? And so what of he's lying to get high?
Wow, I can't believe this guy fooled all of you. lol. "kandykilla420?" Yeah, right. This is some young guy who got prescribed citalopram and wants to know if he can get high off of it. He obviously made up that story about his "daughter." I am posting this so that hopefully somebody will learn something here.
I know this's an old post, but i rly couldn't ignore this1..
You say that your daughter allways tries to find ways to get high on, and i got to say that i personally would grab the problem by the root first of all, because theres nothing normal about constantly be on the lookout for something to get high on in the first place. Do you let her keep'em if they don't make her high, or do you have a very seriously conversation about the fact that she might be a drug addict, and try to get her the help she really needs??? instead of wondering if the drugs that you find in her room makes her stoned or not... i mean, the drugs that u might find in her room, migh not get her stoned, but in the worst case would still kill her cause of other factors that comes with for instance overdoses,allergic reactions and noumerous other factors i don't even know of. I really don't wan't to or tries to offend you in any way offcourse, but just worried, thats all.
I really hope she's doing allright, and maybe tries to deal with the issues that makes her do this things. Wish you the best of luck and a long life :)
Hi, I too am on 60mg (maximum dosage) and never got a "high" of any kind on them. On this dosage regular ECG monitoring is essential. I would fully endorse what Delila has said that to exceed the prescribed dosage could not only cause "serotonin syndrome" but possible cardiac seizure. Use only as prescribed! Bestest
Hi, I also take 60mg & to my knowledge I've never got a high from them. I do want to warn people though that overdosing on citalopram can lead to serotonin syndrome which can make you SERIOUSLY ill! Please be careful everyone.
Yes. I don’t know if its the same for everyone but a friend of mine took three at one time and said it was almost like ecstasy with teeth grinding, euphoria, and enhanced feelings.
i take citalopram 60mg the highest dosage i also smoke weed and occasionally drink, when i have a smoke i dont feel anything else apart from the usual effects of marijuana i.e chilled relaxed and happy to be here
these tablets dont infact they only seem to give me a bad head and low appetite for food and i struggle to sleep and then i struggle to wake up its just a yukky feeling that i get from them
put it this way i'd love my doctor to prescribe me with weed instead as it helps loads weed stops my bad thoughts of killing my self weed makes me wanna be here weed makes me happy it blocks out the past ok i'm not saying its a permanent cure its just temporally relief but it works as soon as i run out of weed am back down on the bottom again in my bedroom most of the time even while just taken these tablets
NO it does not get you high no matter what you take with it if you take too much it will only make you sick for a few days ive took 5x 60mg i got violently sick it doesnt high it doesnt make you happy it doesnt do anything it certainly doesnt kill you just makes you just really sick when i get the courage to see the doctor im getting my meds changed to something else
