My wife has been displaying symptoms of severe depression, anxiety and the biggest issue is a Body Dismorphic Disorder symptoms as confirmed by her CBT therapist.
She has been to see a counsellor, finished with that, went on to CBT which didn't help nearly enough and now the Doctor has prescribed Citaloproam SSRI.
I am very nervous about her taking this but we are at a point where medication is literally the only option to help her cope with her life daily.
She has to start these when I am not at home, and whilst the GP has tried to reassure her that it's unlikely she will get an side affects or they are only temporary I am nonetheless concerned.
She has been given a starting dose of 20mg I believe, which from what I have read is 50% of the maximum you would prescribe.
Please can anyone comment/advise as to whether you've taken this for these things and in particular the Body Dismorphic type symptoms.
