Saw the doctor today and went through medication options, as a lot of you will know I am taking Diazepam already but it's not really doing the job after 18 years and the doc wants to add something else.
I am horribly phobic of meds but this anxiety is crippling and wrestling with agorapobia is so hard, I am due to restart CBT next week and jut hoping I can get there.
Anyway I had been reading about various meds, I suggested Amitriptyline but he said he doesn't like it, I asked about Lexapro and he said his concern is that if it doesn't suit me coming off to switch to something else might be tricky and cause brain zaps...lovely!
He wants me on an anti-psychotic really, I must stress I am not psychotic, I fear psychosis but am assured I don't have it, he just thinks a small dose would calm me but I am way too scared to take one of those.
So he suggested Citalopram, I can't go on like this but gosh I am so scared of trying it, even looking at the prescription revved up my panic, I wish I wasn't such a wimp
Does anyone have any experience of Citalopram? Especially for anxiety and agoraphobia, I am so afraid, I already decided I am not starting it until Monday when I know there is a doctor in the surgery because I feel safer that way in case I have a really bad reaction.
