Hi, my mum passed away in 2009, in 2010 I was put on citalopram... the past 6 months I have slowly been coming off citalopram.. on march 18th I stopped them
Altogether, it was relatively easy weaning off them, but now it has been 2 months off them all together and I have horrendous anxiety... to the point I think I'm going through a existential crisis too.
My doctor checked my depression score and it was 4 which is low, but my anxiety is quite high, so I have been taking proponol beta blockers to help with the anxiety symptoms.
We are planning to start trying for a baby in a few months so there's no point going back on citalopram.. because they will just take me off them again (and start the whole process again)
I'm just feeling very fed up of feeling this anxiety, I just need to know that this will end?? I was on citalopram for 7 years so I guess my brain will struggle for a while to balance out.
I'm trying so hard, doing yoga everyday, avoiding caffeine, watching positive funny films, rescue drops...
One of the things that makes me feel anxious is knowing we are all getting older and will 1 day not be here. (Existential crisis)
It's never bothered me before!
Is there any antidepressants that can be taken whilst pregnant? ??
