After a horrid few months with health issues, I have been diagnosed with depression and prescribed the anti depressant Citalopram. My main symptoms are horrid panic attacks, insomnia, loss of appetite.
I am a bit of an anti tab freak, and I am scared of the side effects and eventually trying to come off of them. In fact the thought of taking them sends my anxiety levels through the roof!
Can anyone relate to that? Am I being irrational? Anyone had a positive outcome by taking them?
My family and friends are encouraging me to try them, as they can see how I am struggling and want me to get better, which of course is understandable. But they don’t understand my fear of the whole scenario.
Am I being unreasonable or can I get through this without medication?
Your personal experiences would be very much appreciated.
