20 Dec 2013 I've found Citalopram to be an amazing help with my depression! However, in early October my lips blistered and peeled and have been extremely chapped ever since extending beyond my lips with originally a couple of patches on my face which have disappeared now.I have never in the past been allergic to my skin care products but have now switched to hyperallergenic products for sensitive skin. No noticable improvement. What are your thoughts?

15 Apr 2013 Since iv been taking citalopram I have been constantly tired and don't have energy to do anything, I find it hard to hold a job down as I get to anxious and I feel so depressed I can't even get oiut of bed ! I don't find it has helped that much, I feel a little less anxious than I used to but that's it, I still get thoughts about harming myself and recently have felt quiwithdrawn and I don't feel like being so I have always been a social person with many friends.
