    As a psychologist and having worked in the NHS, this drug is just another sold to the doctors and told to hand on to patients. Go back to the GP and ask for a different drug. Oxazapam is a good drug and although they insist on saying it can be addictive, it actually seems less problematic than citalopram and with less side effects. Don't forget, there are hundreds of drugs and they just fixate on those the pharmaceutical industry push.
