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!!!

23 Aug 2015 I have been on it fairly 2 weeks and its way to early to give any evaluation but as far as i can feel the loss of energy is interfering with my daily chores.Otherwise it has definitely reduced my anxiety and anger issues and i feel generally way calmer.
