my boyfriend takes 20mg of citalopram daily for depression. he has not seen any side effects and thus far, seems to be doing well with it. However, everyone is different and each person responds differently to the same medication. If you are still feeling this way after having been on it for a few weeks, you should certainly check with your physician and talk to them about other options. the most important thing is for the medicine to be helping you, not causing you multiple side effects. good luck!
