Citalopram Palpitations Causes and Reviews


An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When the heart beats faster than normal, it is called tachycardia. When the heart beats too slowly, it is called bradycardia. The most common type of arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, which causes an irregular and fast heart beat.

Many factors can affect your heart's rhythm, such as having had a heart attack, smoking, congenital heart defects, and stress. Some substances or medicines may also cause arrhythmias.

Symptoms of arrhythmias include

  • Fast or slow heart beat
  • Skipping beats
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating

Your doctor can run tests to find out if you have an arrhythmia. Treatment to restore a normal heart rhythm may include medicines, an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or pacemaker, or sometimes surgery.

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 .
