05 Oct 2014 Experience of slur speech, gain weight , blur visions and irritability.

02 Apr 2014 My doctor just moved me up to 20 mgs, which I've been on for 13 or 14 days. Having extreme fatigue where I need a nap in mid-afternoon. No energy, so forget the gym. Worst part is I can't stop eating! Mild headaches almost daily. Am told this med takes 6-8 weeks to reach full effect, so just be patient and give it time. I don't see my doctor for another 2.5 months and in the meantime, I''m worried about the weight gain and the tiredness. Anyone else going through this ??? Generally I rate my days about a 6 out of 10. Not near good enough.

03 Mar 2014 At first I had a lot of side effects. I already had epilepsy, and it has made my seizures more apparent, but luckily for me, i only have petite mal seizures. I have gained 15lbs on this medication, but it helped me fill out to my body well. I am still quiet in crowds, and get very tired just from going to school. I have noticed my attendance at school has gone up because of this medication. But my friends and family have notice that I have an increase in being irritable, impatient, angry, and tend to have no filter on what I say. Recently my depression has become a bit worse, seeing as I skipped school, became very depressed, blacked out for a while, and don't remember anything from that time. I remember waking up on the floor, and having a swollen, bruised, and very painful arm. My dad helped me try to remember what had happened that day, and now I remember that I became very depressed and self-harmed. Also, my alcohol intake has become a lot higher due to stress from this medication.

18 Mar 2013 I already had pre existing hypothyrodism before taking Cipralex. 10mcg didn't properly help my depression symptoms but 20mcg does. I have tinnitus and balance issues which I now believe maybe caused by Cipralex but have been to see a neurologist and have had an MRI recently which should (hopefully) determine if there is another reason for my symptoms.
