Has anyone got anything good to say about CIT

Posted , 7 users are following.

it appears all the posts suggests it's the AD of choice for GP's but the stories suggest otherwise.

Any good news stories for it?

    The only good thing I can say about citalopram is that it did stop the panic attacks and anxiety but that's about all. Nothing else about it was good for me. cry

    It was great for me years ago Neil. In fact I'd say it pulled me out of the deepest hole I've ever been in.

    You already know that they didn't work for me this time round but I still wouldn't knock them or put them down. Lots of people swear by them. I swore by them.

    How have you been? Xx

    Hi Aspinan, I am on Citalopram and it helps with my anxiety. I had panic attacks before i was on them and have had no panic attacks since. So i find them very helpful after the initial side effects. Been on them for 5 months now.

    Hi Aspinan

    After many years of depression and anxiety, different medications, I was finally put onto Citralopram and I got better and maintained that for 15 years.  I came off a year ago and felt well all that time too, but restarted 3 months ago due to stress of family illness and am already back up on top.

    Get through the first couple of months of awful side effects and you should see a huge difference.  People give up too early because of how it makes you feel initially.

    I don't know what I've have done without this medication.

    So it's a yay! to Citralopram from me cheesygrin
