Hi, new guidelines were introduced to cap the maximum dose of Citalopram to 40mg per day. Research suggests that a higher dose could be detrimental to cardiac health. Also, there is a question as to whether a dose higher than 40mg will act any differently/better. I take 60mg of Citalopram daily, i was prescribed it about 3 years ago now. Personally, i noticed an improvement of my mood, but that doesn't mean that everyone would.
