General & Family Physician 's  Response
Welcome to HCM.He probably needs to carry on with the citalopram ,as it takes almost 3-4 weeks for the drug to reach therapeutic levels when you restart it.A ENT check up to rule out any cause of dizziness,as well as a full physical and neurological check up to rule out systemic disease and CNS cause of the disease would help.If all these are normal,stress and anxiety may be causing psychosomatic symptoms which need management by a experienced mental health professional/psychiatrist.
