... heart palpitations and anxiety. The doctor prescribed Cipralex for me. My heart palpitations have disappeared but I have been experiencing many side effects on Cipralex. My thoughts have changed, I have become uninterested, wanting to sleep all the time. I feel depressed, agitated and confused. I have a dry mouth and no energy. I feel it is doing more harm than good and feel as if I should stop the medication. I will visit my doctor in the week. Can anyone offer extra advice to me?
