There is so much judgemental fearmongoring about long term ssri use on the internet that I am freaking myself out. I won't go into my full story, but I am now on citalpram for the 4th time - it always seems after coming off them I am fine for a matter of months and then everything comes flooding back. Have tried CBT and doesn't seem to work for me, I honestly feel my problem is more 'chemical' as I Can't ever seem to work out what is making me anxious or panicky.
Anyway - I keep hearing horror stories about long term effects of citalopram - heart problems, the risk of the meds 'pooping out', dependency, risk of altzheimers etc - but there never seems to be any definitive proof.
And has anyone been on citalopram through pregnancy? I'm noq curious as to whether I might meed to be on these long term and would like to try for a family next year.
