Citalopram Withdrawal || PHYSICAL SIDE EFFECTS Week 2

Sharing buttons:

so last week I took my medication every

other day and this week I have

completely gone cold turkey and let me

tell you it's got physical hi guys

welcome back to my channel so as you

know if you watched my last video I did

the first seven days of withdrawal I had

different symptoms every single day but

this week it is just being constant all

the same symptoms

so instead of filming each day I've just

listed the most prominent symptoms and

there are seven different withdrawal

symptoms that I've been person and the

last one is definitely the worst I I

don't know if it's actually a withdrawal

but it's something that's been really

getting me down and it's definitely

something physical that I've experienced

since coming off these this week but

yeah I'll tell you all about it but

first I want to mention just a couple of

comments that were on my previous video

so number one someone gave me a really

good piece of advice and that was to

take vitamin and minerals to help with

anxiety and depression so I've been

looking into this and I just can't

believe I've never thought of this

before because it just does make so much


sitting when especially cold climates

like England we tend to lack vitamin D

which we get from the Sun and vitamin D

according to the Holland and Barrett

website has been proven to boost your

mood which is quite obvious in summer

people are a lot happier

compared to winter and yeah I definitely

agree with that but then I don't know if

it's just a selling point because

ceilings are so expensive from Holland

and Burroughs but I have been looking

into other supplements as well and I'll

definitely try those and I'll keep you

guys updated and the second thing I want

to mention is that there are a lot of

articles online that tell you not to

take antidepressants and I can see now

why people do try and stir away from not

taken antidepressants because the

withdrawal is extremely difficult but to

be honest I am so glad I did take them

because if I didn't then I probably

won't have left past 22 years

yeah about 90% of my faults were suicide

but yeah the whiff journal is really bad

and I think the longer that you say on

medication it seems to me by some of the

comments that I've got and what I've

researched the longer you stay on it the

harder it is to come off which is why

I'm coming off it now yeah I do feel

really bad for those people that I've

been taking it for many many years

anyway that's it for that I will get

onto the seven physical withdrawal

symptoms I've been facing this week so

the first one is feeling sick so this is

the symptom that I felt more or less

constant for the whole time this week

and yeah it's not be nice I've not been

physically sick but every time I do eat

I just want to throw it back up again

but what I have noticed is that I feel

more sick on an even in than the rest of

the day so what I've been doing is

making sure that I have eaten before six

o'clock at night so I'm not feeling sick

when I got to sleep which it's

definitely helped the first few days

were really hard because I weren't doing

this I like to eat on and even in but no

that's definitely a bit of advice that I

think if you with that one number two

lower appetite so as well as feeling

sick I have had a really low appetite

and all the time it just felt like I

have just eaten mainly because I have

constantly had that feeling of feeling

sick but yeah I've just not wanted to

eat which is really weird compared to

last week with my symptoms I did feel

like I wanted to eat loads so to have

that being the complete opposite it's

kind of a relief that I'm not wanting to

eat rubbish but yeah I hope I got a

height back soon because I want to eat

to enjoy it not because I need to eat

number three periods okay so this one is

really strange because I purposely came

off the medication a week after I last

had my period just so I was okay for

that time and it wasn't going to affect

my mood as much as it would do so if I'm

gonna get my period whilst being off the

medication but last week I did get my

period I didn't mention it in a video

because I thought it might be because

I'm on the implant and

my periods do come quite irregular but

then this week I got another period so

that's three periods in one month that's

definitely not right and I'm guessing

it's part of the withdrawal because

obviously it's gonna mess up your

hormones it's to do with the chemical

imbalances trying to balance again which

you do come off the medication

so yeah that's completely messed up my

menstrual cycle number four

Swayne so in england all week it is

being really nice it's been so hot and

so nice and yeah I I really enjoyed the

nice weather so I am glad I came off my

medication when I did but I have been

sweating so much which is really weird

for me because I do tend to travel a lot

so I'm guessing my body's adjusted to

this sort of temperature and I'm not

really a sweaty person so yeah they so

you have just been swaying constantly

even in the morning when it's been cool

I'm just uh it's disgusting and this is

a common withdrawal that other people

have mentioned they've had so I

definitely know that me sweating this

much is just because of the medication

and hopefully doesn't last the rest of

the summer number five is that I've had

a constant headache so this is nothing

compared to last week specifically day

three that was close to coming on to a

migraine but yeah it's been more or less

every day that I've woken up and I just

had a headache and it is really annoying

when you wake up with a headache because

you know it's gonna get worse for out

the day and yeah it it just ruins you

did we mix she's so much less not vetted

which sucks but you can take a

paracetamol for this so it's all fine

number six is dry mouth so I guess this

links in to number five is why I was

getting the headaches because every

single morning I have woken up with such

a dry mouth it's like some pepper and

what's annoying about this is that you

just keep drinking and drinking and

drinking and you've still got a dry

mouth it's it's horrible it's definitely

the second worst side of fact that I've

been fasting from my winter

which leads me on to the worst one

number seven and that is hair loss so my

hair is quite thin anyway so when I do

brush it or when I do type up I always

get strands falling out this is like to

the extreme I've never felt like this

before and it just makes me not want to

touch my hair at all because I know that

it's gonna come out and I have fine hair

I don't need to lose any more but yeah

as I said I don't know if this is a wig


if they saw any of the other withdrawal

symptoms has happened to you please

mention it down in the comment section

so those were the physical withdrawal

and I'm gonna mention quickly how I've

been feeling in myself so we'll start

with the positive I've definitely felt a

lot less anxious I don't have the resin

heart compared to last week anyway when

it was literally felt like it was

beating in my thrall

definitely don't have that to be honest

I don't feel anxious at all even when I

was on the medication I always had a

small level of anxiety but the reason

that I did go on antidepressants in the

first place was because of depression

and it wasn't until I took the

medication that I felt what anxiety was

okay so let's get on with the depression

now so this week yeah I've definitely

had really Theory days I've felt like

I'm going into that state of depression

which has made me consider going back on

them but for if I'm giving now then I'm

probably gonna find it a lot harder to

come off it next time because I will get

the anxiety back and I will remember

what the withdrawal is like and how hard

it is okay so that is it for my update

on the second week I will probably give

you another update maybe a month after

I've come off the medication so I'll be

in another couple of weeks but within

that time I am gonna be doing a lot more

mental health videos more positive ones

because I have clicked on in the past

videos on mental health depression and

anxiety but the big you are depressed

that's definitely not my end for you

guys I want to make it an entertaining

video so you don't feel

at the end of it well if you want

to see those videos definitely subscribe

and hit that notification bell and I'll

see you next time
