I've just started 20mg of citalopram for depression and anxiety. What side effects have you had anyone had who's taken it? it's causing me problems sleeping. i don't know if i can stay on it if this is going to be the norm. also, has anyone found citalopram to be effective in easing depression and how easy is it to come off? sorry, lots of questions! i've never taken any form of drugs before, prescribed or otherwise and this was the last resort but i need to find the old Me again and am hoping this will help
