How long have you been taking citalopram for? Some people do have these side effects ... but if you are constantly crying and feeling worse then I would suggest that you see your doctor as sometimes some antidepressants can make your depression and other issues worse. Just get your doctors opinion.
Hi, if you are just starting the Citalopram it is 'normal' to feel this way. It can last for 4 weeks/a month unfortunately. Do you feel more depressed now than you did before starting them? If you are particularly depressed and having worrying thought, of harming yourself or others, you must contact you doctor asap. When i started taking Citalopram, i was a mess for the first 3 weeks, at this stage i contacted my doctor and he increased the dose (earlier than suggested). Almost as soon as i started this new dose i felt a world of difference! They have changed my life for the better. The induction period is hard, but if you can get through it i'm sure you will be pleased with how much better you feel. Feel free to write to me if you want to talk
