Okay, how long have you been on Citalopram for/
It is fairly common for Citalopram to cause Dizziness and drowsiness, but having said that the real concern here is that citalopram is also known to cause arrhythmia. I would suggest that you visit your Urgent Care or an ER for a complete evaluation and an EKG.
The ER will also check for other conditions like low blood pressure, low blood sugar, dehydration and middle ear conditions - these are some of the common causes of dizziness.
But I would not advise that you ignore this, as if it is a side effect of the medication, you might need to be taken off it or the dose might need readjustment.
It is an irregular heart rhythm.
It was a pleasure.
