      It's for the OCD it's crippling at the moment. Read an article about lady on TV developed OCD as result taking sleeping pills then had adverse reaction to an anti depressant which sent it out of control which resonated with what happened to me. As it''s since taking the sertraline I developed it. She's ok now after therapy and on low dose AD? Saw a psych but he put me n on high dose SNRI only lasted few days made me feel spaced out nauseous insomnia. Was benzo helpline advised against them but they are anti any drugs

      Thanks think might try the citalopram again starting on 5mg as apart from it affecting my hair was OK on that. Got an appt with a therapist so hopefully might help. The psychiatrist just seemed want put me on high dose something for quick fix which I really can't tolerate. Just seems difficul finding someone who can actually help you!!!!

      Just seems wack you on anything hope for the best is what they do. The psych tried label me as having GAD when it's zopiclone withdrawal and possible withdrawal from mixing AD that GP encouraged me to do. Giving up hope ever improving at moment.
