Citalopram Agitation Causes and Reviews


Caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease (AD) can be stressful and overwhelming. It's important to take care of yourself. Ask for and accept help.

Talk to the doctor. Find out what treatments might help control symptoms or address behavior problems. Find a support group. Others who have "been there" may be able to help and will understand.

If there are times of day that the person is less confused or more cooperative, take advantage of that in daily routines. Consider using adult day care or respite services. These offer a break with the peace of mind that the patient is being taken care of. Begin to plan for the future. This may include

  • Getting financial and legal documents in order
  • Looking into assisted living or nursing homes
  • Finding out what your health insurance and Medicare will cover

Tue, 25 Oct 2011

I have been prescribed Citalopram and for the first two months had started to feel better. However I noticed on my third prescription my regular pharmacist had changed the brand to aurobindo I didn't think anything of it at the time . However after two days of taking , I have started to experience a lighthead / dizziness. I continued to take the tablets hoping that the this would go , unfortunately it has become worse , to the point where I haven't wanted to partake in my usual activities , walking , swimming and daily tasks. I visited my GP yesterday who dismissed my experience . He did give me another prescription which I have taken to my regular pharmacy, who dispensed the original brand which I had previously taken without any side effects . I have decided to start coming of this type of medication due to my recent bad experience and shall begin reducing my dose over the next few weeks .
