A 45-year-old male asked:
I've been on a low dose of Citalopram for a while now. I've read that higher doses sometimes can cause Arrhythmia. Is either 10-20 mg safe to take?

Yes: There was a study which reported that higher doses of Citalopram may be associated with increased risk of an arrhythmia. This finding has not been replicated and other studies have not found this.
