  • The only side effect I experienced was sweating, a lot more than I'm used to. And I wasn't even hot. Apart from that it started working within a week but after 2 months of taking it my anxiety returned so am looking for something stronger.

  • Did not work for me; in fact, made me feel worse and suicidal for a couple of weeks, with much more wild mood swings. Switched to Wellbutrin which was much better.

  • Had to take it before bed or would be tired all day. First couple nights it gave me insomnia, but this passed.

  • The first and most noticeable side effect for me was drowsiness. This effect fades with prolonged use. Otherwise citalopram has, for me, the lowest occurrence of side effects of any antidepressant I've tried, including Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Lexapro, and Effexor. Did not cause sexual side effects for me. Does cause excessive sweating, but nothing that an extra strength anti-perspirant and baby powder can't handle.

  • It killed my sex drive and did nothing for my anxiety, so I stopped after about four months. Don't hesitate to tell your doctor it isn't working. There are other options.

  • Drug saved my life, but serious sexual side effects.

  • Watch your drinking habits while taking this. Can cause you to drink more and not feel the total effects of it.

  • Be patient for the first few weeks. It takes a while to kick-in

  • My emotional problems were MS induced: depression, anxiety, and PBA (emotional incontinence). This drug relieved all these symptoms within two days of starting. I've not noticed any side effects.
