Although guys um welcome to another episode of anxiety relief today i want to talk to you guys because i’ve been getting a lot of questions on some certain things so i’m going to make this a short quick video or reference purposes do you get sexual side-effects no i haven’t had any sexual side effects on citalopram whatsoever have i had any problems with increased

Anxiety no have i had any suicidal thoughts no have i had problems with sweating feeling hot at some times yes i’ve had some issues with being hot and sweating but they’re minor it’s nothing that happens all the time vivid dreams i do have vivid dreams and the dreams are they feel very real sometimes but it’s not an issue where it affects me sleeping they’re

Not nightmares and they’re nothing that really bothers me to the point where i can’t sleep another one of the side effects i do have is the jaw clenching where you sit there and you try to just grit down in your teeth that’s another side effect that i that i have but long story short defects are very minimal for me with this i mean i’m sure that there might be

Some other side effects that they’ll know about it’s always good to go to your doctor get your blood checked out and get your blood work done make sure that you’re keeping up and try you know on try out a track on that and up to date another thing is is that when you first get on this if you’re taking citalopram or selex or any other ssris be sure to never quit

Cold-turkey just make sure you stay on it until either your doctor says quit because trust me you you will feel weird there was a couple days where i missed because i was trying to get my prescription and i felt dizzy tired and it’s not fun i missing out on doses and stuff like that it also takes about three to six weeks to fully kick in and actually feel it so

If you’re sitting there and you’re taking it for a few days this is one of the biggest questions i get well how long is it we’ll take the kick in i’m scared to take it i’m scared to take it trust me it’s gonna take a little bit to kick in it will take a little bit of time to kick in and you have to be patient with it and you have to eat healthy when you’re on it

And i wouldn’t recommend drinking i wouldn’t recommend drinking a bunch of energy drinks or anything like that you know take it if your doctor prescribes it if you want to try it out you want to try to get some relief try it give it a chance but at the same time don’t abuse it don’t be drinking you know do anything uh i mean a bunch of caffeine and stuff like that

Because what you’re doing is is you’re altering the way that the drug works when you’re on you know other things and there’s a whole list of other drugs and stuff that you shouldn’t take while you’re on it there i mean you have to go in and you have to look and make sure that you’re not taking other things it’s also very important to note that there’s a serotonin

Syndrome that you can get if you actually are taking other antidepressants so please be cautious when you’re on this stuff people you know talk to your doctor sit down if you have questions with your doctor don’t be afraid i know like when i used to go to the doctor i would sit there and i’d have anxiety i just want to get out of there take the time to ask i have

A full-time job now i’m actually running my own business now as a personal trainer and allows me to do is feel comfortable with people and and talk to people and not feel anxiety and not feel stressed out and feel like i need to be home now like i feel great and i’m doing really well and i want other people to do really well and feel great i want every one of you
