Reviews for Citalopram to treat Hot Flashes

"I menopausal with bad Anxiety in mornings, with shakes, hot flashes and depression. I started on the Generic Celexa 10mg first seven days at night, which helped me sleep, dry mouth and diarrhea, then took 20mg and on day three on that, anxiety gone, think clearly, depression lifted, energy again and no more hot flashes. No constant worry some thoughts that ruled my brain. I won't come off this again."

"I have been taking citalopram HBR 10 mg for about a year. I have had more restfull nights than I have had in many years. Hot flashes have been reduced by 90 percent, none at night!! My anxiety is gone most of the time. So far so good. I don't know what long term use will do to my organs. I haven't found a lot of information on long term use. Over all very happy with this medication!!"

"I have been on Citralopram for a few years now. I am currently enduring the worst hot flashes I have ever had. Citralopram does nothing for me other than mute my emotions."

"I was having a lot of trouble sleeping due to constant hot flashes for months. I felt exhausted all day and at night fall asleep then wide awake an hour later kicking covers off and on. Dr. recommended low dosage and after a few jittery days I was sleeping most of the night and feeling rested in the morning. It's been almost a month and I am so happy to have found something that works. No more expensive supplements that don't even work."
