Due to long standing mental health problems I've been taking an SSRI medication - Citalopram at 40mg - for the last three years. I've been running with no real problems but I always have a worry in the back of my mind about whether it's safe to do so, especially when i'm pushing myself to a PB in races, or over a longer distance. My doctor advised it was fine to run on this medication but is it? The side effects of Citalopram list for instance a higher chance of bone fractures. I am looking at halving the dose over the next few months and then reducing again as I have been well for some time now, but I would be interested in hearing others opinions and experiences of this issue.
