I've been on setraline 100mg for 2months! With no improvement. Should the Citalapram side effects be as bad? Many regards Karen Lawson
Hi, it does depend how you introduce the Citalopram, straight swap, or tapering from Sertraline before adding Citalopram, and also the dose you start on. My history with starting Citalopram was very bad depression for the first 3 weeks (20mg), but then my doctor ordered an increase (40mg) and i felt better, back to my 'normal' self almost immediately. This doesn't happen for everyone, but just wanted to share my experience. Long term the only side effect i have noticed is weight gain.
