... exacerbated by this drug. Also I do a lot of running and swimming, but find that I can't seem to perform as I previously could. Is this common? I've only been on it for a few days and I'm wondering if these symptoms pass after a time
Hi, cajas! I've copied this for you:
Cardiovascular side effects including tachycardia, postural hypotension, and hypotension have been reported frequently. Hypertension, bradycardia, edema (extremities), angina pectoris, extrasystoles, cardiac failure, flushing, myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident, and myocardial ischemia have been reported infrequently. Transient ischemic attack, phlebitis, atrial fibrillation, cardiac arrest, bundle branch block, thrombocytopenia, ventricular arrhythmia, Torsades de pointes, and angioedema have rarely been reported. Prolonged QT interval has been reported to be temporally associated with citalopram treatment.
You should definitely let your doctor know you're having this problem
Best wishes and I hope this is just a passing side effect! WC

medicines.My Prayers and best wishes for you.Needless to say -You should stop lxapro at the eariliest.Good Luck--
