I've just hit menopause big time and have been terrible hot flushes, lacking in sleep and crying all the time. I went to see my doctor yesterday to get my bloodtest results and I told him that I was feeling awful, lacking in confidence, hot and cold and all the other symptons that I'm sure everyone else is suffering too.
I told him I was taking lots of herbal medication from A.Vogel and it was early days but I was just feeling so low. He suggested 10mg of Citalopram for about three months but he wants to see me again in three weeks. I was worried about being hooked on them and having problems coming off them but he assured me for such a short period of time it wouldn't be a problem. He gave me this patient forum to look at and I've come across everyones comments on Cit and none of them seem positive and its worrying me.. Has no one had a good result from them - all I can see if headaches, sleeplessness, nausea, dirarreah, sweaty palms, dizziness - this is really worrying me now. I spoke with the pharmacist when I picked up my prescription and he said that I could get a bad reaction possibly in the first two weeks but after that it would be fine.
Interested to hear what anyone else thinks about this?
