I took Citalopram/Celexa for several months. It was not so harsh for me as was Sertraline.

    Serialise made me feel very disconnected. Not so much Celexa. But it took 3 months to really kick in. Towards the end of my time with it I started getting brain zaps at night.

    Did it help? Maybe. I think so. I think it stopped panic attacks.

    I’ve been OK now for about 3 years. I don’t take meds now. But I have tinnitus and vertigo which seemed to start about the time just after I had brain zaps. Connected? I don’t know. Just thought it was worth saying.

    I think those meds are, or can be, pretty harsh.
