Im new on here and desperately need some help.
I am on 50 mg of citalopram daily for anxiety and deppresion but about eight weeks ago started to suffer from a headache after coughing hard , the pain is in the left side of my head and hurt more when I coughed or crouched down.My Dr sent me for a CT scan and that came back normal,that was about 4 weeks ago I am still getting these headaches and he now thinks it may be the high dose i have been on of citalopram I have been on the 50 mg since about july and before that I was on 20mg then 40 mg.The headache thing started about begining Sept and is now like a stabbing in the top left hand side of head.
What I want to know is have any of you experienced the same through citalopram? and can citalopram cause this. Is the ct scan a good test for the headaches as I suffer with chronic anxiety.
