Default Citalopram (Celexa)

Just taken my first 20mg last night. Have had the dry throat and stomach pains which I've read about but I'm sure I have more body hair unless I'm being paranoid. Anyone know of this as a side effect? I've never read about it.

some things it's meant to do, certain people have the opposite effect. like libido i've read. and hair loss is associated with anti depressants.

yes they can cause things like cramps ect which can b instant, and anti depressants can cause hair loss.
but if hair gain is a side effect then i would have thought it would b more gradual then instant.. as hair really does take time to grow

yes, keep an eye on it, and if it seems to get worse then see a doc.

you also said your just back from hols... sometimes if we get tanned the hairs can become more noticable because of the slight skin colour difference

yeah i left the sunny part well over a week ago though. it's my upper arms which were always covered that seem the biggest difference. same with chest. in fact a scar on my arm that won't go away seems to have growth right by it now which i don't remember the other day. i am a natural worrier though.
