causes ankle edema in approximately 1 in a 1000 people. This is not a serious side-effect when compared to the benefit most people experience with citalopram. Triamterene/HCTZ
contains a diuretic
and therefore will not cause edema. Tramadol
also does not cause edema.
If you are concerned by the edema, you may wish to discuss alternatives to citalopram as there are a number available.
Hope this has helped you.
