Default 1st day on Citalopram.... HELP!!!

Hi there,
Im 21 and have been put on Citralopram 20mg.

So I took it for the first time today and I started to feel quite sick but thats not my worry.

For the last hour or so I have been laughing uncontrollably and every thing seems highly funny to me.

Is this normal for those who are on Citalopram?

Camason - I googled it for the side effects, and the only thing I could find was that you should contact your doctor immediately if you experience

unusual or severe mental/mood changes
If it doesn't stop shortly, you should contact your doctor.

Hey,
I was also put on this not too long ago and had some very serious psychological side effects which resulted in me being put in a psychiatric inpatient ward. Please contact your doctor, just to be on the safe side. Good luck!

I've been taking Citralopram since the end of June so about two months and a half and nothing weird yet. The first week I took it I was very tired, in fact I think the first ten days I pretty much slept through them [which was fine with me because I LOVE to sleep] I did however notice having very strange vivid dreams but it's a nice change from my constant dreams of se, love, terror and death. I don't notice a big difference of change however so I had them up my dosage to 30mg a month after and the un-welcome thoughts are gone [the thoughts of why am I living, can I just die]. I feel more focused and relaxed at times that I should be. I still have bouts of sadness though, usually when I am, thinking about life or something that I wish. I haven't felt happiness yet though, just a semi-at peace which is fine with me.
