Two separate questions really. I've been on citalopram since about 2009/10. They have totally changed my life. In that time I've come off them 4 times and gone back on them within a matter of months. I never manage to stay off them. Before I started them my whole life was filled with anxiety and depression to a point that I didn't really know life another way. Cit has given me the strength to actually be myself and learn to love my love.
Problem is I'm now UTTERLY terrified of coming off them. I'm so scared my gp will tell me I need to stop taking them - any experience with long term use?
The other thing is I have gained so much weight since the last time I started taking them (2014). Granted I have had a baby in that time but the weight just piles on every time I take it and I drastically lose weight every time I stop taking it. I know about the link to weight gain but can anyone offer any advice on how to lose weight successfully while on citalopram?
