Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to say that first of all it is important to ask your physician to change citalopram to another anti-depressant such as Sertraline which is safe in heart disease. Citalopram is not a safe option in your case with established heart disease. Citalopram can easily interfere the rhythm of the heart and can give dizziness, black outs, weakness as side effects. Please do this soon as possible about changing your anti-depressant to Sertraline. Also I will like to discuss with your GP or physician to consider CT scan head to rule out any mixed or small vessel disease which can also give such symptoms as you are having. Your doctor should refer you to a falls clinic or neurologist. If family doctor is not listening then change your doctor as these are serious symptoms should be investigated.

Let me know If you need any more information. Please click on the 5 star excellent rating icon so I can get credit for my time with you.

Kind regards

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
