Wow, good to know. My doctor prescribed me this medication but I stopped taking it after a week due to side effects, I guess my body knew;)

A study for medical regulators found that the drugs increase the risk of heart problems which can cause sudden death.

Doctors have been told to lower the maximum dose of the UKs most widely prescribed antidepressant, Citalopram, for all patients.
