    Find some foods that agree with you. Maybe a diet for people with allergies. Treat the symptoms. Take something for the headache pain. Try drinking mineral water for balance. If some of your problems let up eat a proper diet. Write down what you need to tell your doctor

    Hello Jake,

    Just a quick one  while I give this some more thought. Two things immediately spring to mind - Meditation and/or cardio exercise like running. I say this because I was on Citalopram for 20 YEARS while at the same time being a long distance runner. I fractured my hip in January and had to stop running my depression became absolutely HORRENDOUS which led me to the conclusion that it had been my running all along that was controlling my depression and NOT  the Citalopram. Meditation has also helped enormously. and I agree with g.90572 diet is everything. Good Luck

    hello again Jake,

    Running and or walking is free and it needs very little in the way of equipment. You live in a beautiful country so go and enjoy it. You can start slowly i.e. 1 mile for a week ( however often you can spare) and build it gradually from there.It is a combination of the fresh air and exercise that is most therapeutic to us so I prefer any activity that is OUTDOORS for maximum effect. Aim to get a bit sweaty and a little out of breath to experience maximum benefit.Long days like this are an ideal starting time. Take some water with you and off you go, just wear the right shoes.Dietary requirements are a personal thing some of us are gluten intolerant - worth looking at - so we have to eat accordingly. Basically fresh fruit, vegetables protein are the obvious choices and stay away from junk food and takeaways they can make you feel crap. The one thing I have found out this year and that is that my running was controlling my depression and NOT the Citalopram, I found this out the hard way when I fractured my hip and could not run at all, my depression was absolutely dreadful even though I was taking 20mg Citalopram daily. I emphasise that is MY experience but worth noting. As I said before this forum is your best friend use it we are all in it together. Good Luck
