Hello Minimee5. I would let your doctor know how you are feeling. This type of drug effects everyone in a different manner. I am not doctor. As a direct answer to your question, I would answer no. Its not that common a side effect. However, more so in the older psychatric drugs, the tricylics it was more of a common, expected side effect, to this family of drugs. Regards pledge
Hi, i agree with Pledge. Talk to your doctor about how you are feeling. When starting an SSRI, such as Citalopram, it will take 4 weeks to stablise and work most effectively. During the first 4 weeks you are more prone to side effects, so you can look forward to feeling better soon. Hopefully you will find that this is a really good antidepressant.
