After struggling along for about 6-8mths I plucked up the courage to visit my GP this morning. After telling her about how I'm feeling and asking for help she prescribed me 10mg's of Citalopram - take this for 1 wk then increase to 20mg. She's booked me in for blood tests and has referred me to a councilor. I was felt relieved when I left the practice, I can now begin to find myself and get myself back to my old self.
Like most people.. I wanted to do some research on the drug before I start to take it - this forum was the 3rd google hit - so here I am.
I can't say I've seen anything massively positive about Citalopram - can anyone give me any encouraging words?
A little bit about why I’m here.
I had a baby a year ago, since I’ve just been getting on being a new mum and dealing with stuff day to day. For months now it’s been noted that I’ve lost my personality, I’ve become seriously stressed and very anxious – about almost everything!!! My interest in sex has gone away – totally! This is obviously causing problems in my relationship. My memory and concentration is terrible, don’t ask me to make any decisions. I had a panic attack a week ago – the 1st ever – it was terrible! I’ve lost all interest in normal activities, I have no energy and feel lazy! I’m losing my self confidence, it’s getting worst daily! I’m even making excuses not to see people!
So there you have it – I’m worried after reading a few posts.
Any words of encouragement?
