I was on Citalopram for a period of about 10 months after experiencing a nervous breakdown, thru continued panic attacks, anxiety, and of course sleeping 1-2 hours a night for days/weeks. I weaned off over a period of 3 months and stopped at the end of April 2018. I've struggled with high annoyance, irritation and anger for some of the time over the 3 months I've been off. I thought it was a normal process of withdrawal, with other emotions being numbed(anger) while I was on it. Anyway, I would say with some minor setbacks, I was getting better. August 1st, my wife's mother died. Her dad died 12 years ago. I lost my mom 2 years ago. I think that is what pushed me towards my breakdown. We are both 39. With the loss of her mom, it has caused more struggles in our already struggling relationship. She has had, I would say minor addiction problems. A few days ago she took Tramadol pills (I think it's a narcotic) from the home of good friends of ours. This caused some issues over a few days. We had I fight, and I started getting shaky with different emotions. (Anyone else ever get that way?) Anyway it led to me feeling some overwhelming anxiety I haven't had in long time. And sup been a few days and my sleep is being affected. (Huge concern to me!!!) I was considering starting the 10 mg Citalopram again that I was on before, but I really don't want to, but I will. As it destroys my sex life. Can I take it on an as needed basis? Or if anyone else has some inciteful advice for me with my story it would be GREATLY appreciated!!! Please help!!! You guys have been very helpful to me and everyone else in this forum in the past. THANK YOU!!!
