Are there any specific instructions for taking citalopram?

When providing an online citalopram prescription, your doctor will clearly outline how to take citalopram and the correct dosage to follow based on your age, severity of the condition, and any other medical conditions present. Other things to keep in mind are:

  • It can take up to a month for symptoms to improve so ensure you continue to follow the prescription guidelines, even if you feel it is not working yet.
  • To avoid withdrawal symptoms, it is important to avoid abruptly stopping taking citalopram.
  • Avoid drugs and alcohol during the course of your citalopram prescription.

What warnings are associated with citalopram?

There are several warnings a doctor will make you aware of when providing an online citalopram prescription. These include:

  • An allergy warning. It is possible that in certain individuals, citalopram can cause a severe allergic reaction. Symptoms are difficulty breathing, swollen face, mouth, tongue, or eyes, fever, and the appearance of a rash.
  • Alcohol consumption. Drinking alcohol can heighten some of citalopram’s side effects like sleepiness or slow reactions.
  • Warning for individuals with heart problems, low potassium or magnesium levels. Citalopram can increase risk of changes in heart rhythm.
  • Warnings for people with kidney or liver disease. Citalopram might cause more severe side effects.
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women. Research has found that citalopram can be damaging to the fetus or a breastfed child.

When should I speak to a doctor about citalopram side effects?

If you are experiencing severe side effects that are lasting more than two days, then you should contact your doctor. Additionally, if citalopram is causing suicidal thoughts, aggression, dangerous impulses, heart rhythm changes, or panic attacks then call your doctor immediately.

  • Bleeding or blood clotting
  • Bipolar disorder
