Citrilopram side effects, anyone else kinda feel like you were 'trippin for a little while ? I am on my 4 th day of generic celexa 10 mgs and when I took it last Night I felt like I was dreaming but my eyes were open. I had that feeling in my stomach that you get when you take ecstasy, like you need to throw up but your not actually nauseas. I know it sounds weird but did anyone else feel this way as well.?
I'm on my third week and I felt real nauseous for a couple weeks. Headache and even bad anxiety but now it's getting better. I was told to stick it out for the initial time and I'm glad I did. So I don't know if what you're experiencing is right or wrong for you. That was just my experience. Hope all is ok
Dear Jacque17, HI, your symptoms do sound weird, especially on the low
dose you are taking. The generic Celexa has been a lifesaver for me at
20 mgs in the am, after eating breakfast. I have been on it for 6 yrs. for
depression. Is that why your Dr. put you on it? Talk to him, but try it out
a little while longer if possible. No trippin' for me...
Hi, you really need to get checked out asap. I don't want to worry you but the following are listed as severe side effects and could explain why you are feeling the way you are; light-headedness, confusion, bizarre behaviour, hallucinations... You probably need to discontinue the medication but don't make any changes without medical advice. I hope you are soon feeling better!
Dude, I am on day 7 of 10mg and just looked this up because of what I am experiencing. I was/am definitely feeling a trip. The best way I can describe it is like a fullness and conscious awareness of my suroundings, yet feeling above it all. Like the world and everyone going about their lives around me is part of a grand experience and I am calmly observing and participating. Like I feel connected to everything but mentally a level above. Kind of like an hyper aware extasy feeling. I've only taken that once, but it the closest comparison I can draw to the sensual experience Im in. The difference is how calm I feel. Weird.
I'm on day 3 and I literally feel like I'm on bad MDA. I feel a bit naseated, spaced out, eyes are swimming and I'm only on 10mg. This stuff feels aweful. I only have mild depressive symptoms and recently haven't been able to manage my anxiety. Honestly I think taking CBDs or even THC would be better but the doctor I got didn't really know enough about it. Hard part is, I know LOTs about it but I have kids now and want to have to go the illegal route. (Looking forwards to legalization here). I hate this drug so far. I hope the withdrawals aren't too bad. I've heard they can be feel like electric brain zaps. I don't want brain zaps. My brain shouldn't be zapping. Anyways, I am glad to k ow others had the same feelings. This is why I have ALWAYS said no to prescriptions.
Yes totally, I felt like I’d taken ecstacy and stopped taking them the first time around. My depression got quite bad so went back and got a lower dose. Even at the lower dose I was very high for the first 7 days but after that my body got used to it and I am able to function perfectly fine. I take them an hour before bed and sleep really well now. I have become drug and alcohol free and my mood is most excellent.
