Citalopram Disorientation Causes and Reviews


Have you ever felt dizzy, lightheaded, or as if the room is spinning around you? If the feeling happens often, it could be a sign of a balance problem. Balance problems can make you feel unsteady. You may also have blurred vision, confusion, and Disorientation. They are one cause of falls and fall-related injuries, such as a hip fracture.

Some balance problems are due to problems in the inner ear. Others may involve another part of the body, such as the brain or the heart. Aging, infections, head injury, certain medicines, or problems with blood circulation may also cause balance problems.

It is important to see your doctor about balance problems. They can be a sign of other health problems, such as an ear infection or a stroke. Your doctor may send you to a specialist for a diagnosis. You may need a hearing test, blood tests, or imaging studies of your head and brain. Other possible tests look at your eye movements, and how your body responds to movement.

In some cases, treating the illness that is causing the disorder will help with the balance problem. Exercises, a change in diet, and some medicines also can help.

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 .
