Hi, I am a 26 years old guy. I am 2 weeks into citalopram treatment for Social Anxiety Disorder and Severe Depression,the depression possibly solely as a result of S.A.D. I'd been silently suffering for somewhere between 10-16 years.
Good part is I already feel drasticly different in my head, I am no longer in hell, drowning in mental sewerege, my skin doesn't crawl at the thourght of my life anymore. For the first time in my life I feel able to communicate with family and friends and am experiencing what I think is mental clarity!?!
I realise reading the other comments that I am very lucky in this respect and don't wish to be insensitive to people going thru much harder times than my little war. I realy hope every one finds a way to get thru things.
However, although the nausia, dizzyness, confusion side effects are reducing I am now very deeply apathetic to both the good and bad and my libido has vanished.
I am not freekin out and thinking of stopping taking the pills. Its early days for me but if there is anyone out there in a vaugly similar situation or slightly further down the track I'd find it really helpful to strike up a chat and compair notes, so PLEEEEEEZE reply.
Good luck everyone, hang in there :o
