Hello, I'm on day 2 of my Cipralex treatment and I started having doubts...
TL;DR is it possible to take Cipralex for only a few months?
I've always had anxiety, but it got worse once I turned 18 and started working. I coped for a long while, finding methods to deal with the pain and thoughts but now I'm starting a new phase in my life, I'm not working for past 6 months, I quit my previous job, telling myself I'll work on myself and search for a new job... It was supposed to be a matter of 3 months, but as I got closer to that 3 month mark my anxiety got worse and I started having chest pains (it's been going for long that my chest muscles are constantly sore atm, I seriously thought I was having a heart attack at some point), after 3 months of chest pains and a very pessimistic mindset I decided to go to my doctor who gave me Cipralex... It was a hard decision because I am, among other things, a control freak when it comes to myself (+ anxious about taking meds in general >_>..
I'm not sure if it's elevated anxiety (from taking the drug) that's talking but I'm ALREADY worried about getting off the drug, my plan was more on the "short-term" side - 4 to 6 months, in hope of getting my life together and stop using the med afterwards, but every person on the net who talks about this drug takes it for years... I'm concered that I'll become dependant... I'm also worried about side effects from going off the drug and that it might make everything fall apart all over again..
Thank you for reading!
