Hi all basically my doctor perscribed me citalopram(10mg in the evening) The more I research it, the more I really don't want to take it as I have a heart condition(bradycardia) and suspected syptoms of Long QT Interval..
on the citalopram warnings, it said NOT to take it if you have any of these. My doc did ask was my heart okay and I said yes? He didn't explain that citalopram would effect it, even in small doses.
My doctor perscribed it but I feel like if I ask for a different medication, hes going to think I'm fussy? my heart already is very slow & ireggular so it makes no sense why I would take medication that has been known to increase chances of carddic arrest(in people with my heart condition)
On the other hand, I really need to feel better & I kinda want to take it just so I have time to get the side effects over with before starting work but at the same time... I realllllllly don't think its wise of me to take it.
I have no-one to gain advice from and I cant speak to my doctor until monday so I don't know what to do?
I can't find anyone with my heart issue that is taking or has taken it, its relativly safe for the majoirty of people but all the research I'm finding is saying noooooo.
How can I over-ride my doctors perscription by sounding like "no thanks, I think I know better" ahh
