Hi everyone this is my first post on here so please be kind.
I started taking Citalopram last night after going to see my GP and explaining my situation.
My partner left me last week after 13 years and this has left me devastated. Although things hadn't been great for a while we'd been through so much together and when she told me it was over, it knocked me off me feet.
I've had feelings of anxiety and worry, etc for a few months but since last week my state of mind has rapidly worsened. I can't sleep or eat and have been drinking way more than I know I should, I'm always anxious and I am always bursting into tears when I think about what's happened - everything that I used to look forward to is now just such an effort and just don't know how I'm going to cope, which was the reason for seeing my GP.
I have supportive family and friends who I've seen, but when I'm with them I still feel so alone - does that make sense?
I've always been happy go lucky and never thought I could feel like this.
Since last night I've read good and bad things about this medication, so any advice would be appreciated. Cheers and sorry for the self pity and waffling on!
