Hi, Cb! Citalopram has an extremely long half life of about 35 hours which means traces of the medication can stay in your system for about a week. It also depends on the dose you were taking and for how long.
I'm assuming that perhaps you just started the medication and are experiencing the initial side effects? These normally resolve within just a few days to a week or two... but you should report them to your doctor right away.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better very soon.
