User Comments about Cipralex
03 Apr 2016 After trying numerous antidepressants years back and having bizarre reactions and becoming a walking zombie I was prescribed "Cipralex" 3 weeks ago tomorrow. I started with only 1/4 of a tablet as I was apprehensive but beside a bit of an odd smell when going to the bathroom they are amazing. After only 1/4 pill the first day about 4 hours after I took it I found myself laughing for the first time in years and now feel calmer, and much more focused with more drive. A month ago I could barely read a paragraph without losing my concentration or re-reading it over and over,now I WANT to read and read. I feel so much more in control,then again I have been experiencing depression for about 20 years and yes you can talk yourself out of it BUT it will NOT go away and often gets worse.It will ruin your life be aware it is very serious depression,it creeps up slowly until people pull away from you. It DESTROYED my last relationship with my girlfriend who I thought I would marry. I became indifferent, took her for granted, didn't shower much,looked scruffy,became a recluse,took no interest in her or her friends, went to bed at 6am in the morning ,became distant and bad tempered. I cannot endorse these things more 'Cipralex' are state of the art and you do NOT feel weird or spaced out. I feel SO much like my old self,in fact trying hard to improve myself in many areas now and hoping to meet her in a few months to apologize,my dream obviously being that perhaps we could form a bond and eventually try one more time....... People honestly you have nothing to lose except wasting time procrastinating like I did ,try these pills they are making a huge difference for me so far. Good Luck to all thanks much for reading P

19 Sep 2015 Hi ! I am on cipralex 10mg) for anxiety, for a while now and few side effects : I noticed...I had an yeast infection,burning sensation (twice in different month I tried to cure my yeast infection,but, nothing work,every since.I been through,body twitching,heartburns,difficulty of breathing sometimes,feeling cold or hot sweating,constipations,feeling dizzy,scared of fainting in public,very sleepy,no sex drive or energy,feeling more anxieties cuz of the side effects(withdrawals) of the medications.When I went for my flu shot in 2014...I felt head lighted,the feeling of fainting and searching to breathe,I were panicking...after couple of days,I started to bleed like my time of the month,but,it wasn't...it were the side effect with cipralex and the flu shot reaction together.I couldn't get pregnant and heavy bleeding in my time of the month,burning sensation,yeast infection,urinating more. Next year 2015, I lower my dose to 5mg and never returned for my flu shot ever since,too scared.In Sept, I got pregnant,what a surprise and sometimes,it hurts extremely in the cervix area...to a point, I couldn't walk,I am sure its normal. I feel better and I am not sure...if,it's good for the baby. I believe 10mg...was too high for me and I am not sure...it were the main cause,for me,that I couldn't get pregnant before. Anything is possible ! Thanx !

22 Sep 2015 To ad few side effect to the list...21 Sept 2015 my left eyelid started to burn and hitch,a red patch. My right eyelid had little skin tag and blurry vision...very sleepy sometimes. We are still looking for a family doctor and these days it's pretty hard to find or get the help we need.The question...do I stay on the(5mg) medication or not and I am sure,I need a lower prescription than Cipralex ? I am disappointed and I am sure,I am allergic to the medication...I still wish,to have natural medication who can cure my anxieties etc. Thank you...for your understanding and for your opinions,comments,for your help.Have a great day and evening ! GOD bless !

02 Sep 2015 THIS DRUG PERMANENTLY CASTRATED ME. I took 10 mg a day for 5 weeks and lost all sexual function. It has been a year after discontinuation and I have not regained my libido, arousal, desire. Am completely asexual. I am not taking any drugs and have not taken any before in my life. Will most likely commit suicide. THANKS LUNDBECK! I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL!!!
