What's going on? - October 20th 2010, 02:08 PM

So I take 30mg of citalopram daily, and recently my dose was upped from 20mg.
I haven't been able to sleep since, I get maybe 3 or 4 hours a night. Last night I was lying there and suddenly I became really clammy and the room started spinning wildly. Then I threw up several times. The room is still spinning now and I have a really bad migrane. Everyone thinks i've overdosed but I honestly didn't. I did 5 days ago though.
Do you think its to do with the OD, my citalopram or something else?
Thanks! X

Hey there,

We're not medical professionals, but I can say a couple of things. It really depends on what you overdosed. Either way, if you're feeling this way you really should get back to your doctors. I'm on 20mg of Citalopram at the moment, and I felt pretty dizzy and unwell when I first got put on it. Give your doctor a call and ask what he's got to say!

In the future, I would call your pharmacist or prescribing medical practitioner if you experience symptoms like those. It could be related to your medication or it may not be, but those are serious symptoms.
