Cipralex for 10 years

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all

I have been on Cipralex for 10 years and for some time now I feel my anxiety and depression has returned (I dont think going through the menopause is helping)

My doctor today has changed my medication to Sertraline. I have to gradually come off the cipralex and then slowly wean myself onto the Sertraline.

Has anyone elses meds stopped working after many year? and bee changed with success.

Many thanks

    Sometimes the body can become used to a medication especially after an extended period. Although I take Citalopram and have been on them or over ten years and still calm, in fact I feel quiet normal.
