Re: tomorrow!

Okay Im back. She referred me to a few therapists if "i would like" and I do so I am going to look into them soon.

she did put me on an anti-depressant its a generic of something. it's called "citalopram" 20mg

It occured to me that once I left she didnt explain to me how to take it or anything. Thankfully they come with guides! So im about to take my first one. I know it can be a few weeks to take effect.

I have to go back in on the 18th for a follow up. She wants to do blood work and make sure im not anemic or having and thyroid issues!

Overall it went better then I expected. It wasnt too hard to talk to her but at the same time it sorta was since she is the doctor that I go to for my yearly exams!

so if anyone has taken citalopram I would like to hear your thoughts on it, what you thought of it.

Thanks again for all the support...it really made today easier on me!

Re: tomorrow!

Hello Piranna65,

I have taken Citalopram. However, I was not on it very long because it gave me rash and really bad nausea. But it may work for you. I am sure that you know medications affect each person differently. Take care.

Re: tomorrow!

I am on citalopram 60mg (also known as celexa, or cipramil as it's brand name)

I have found, for me personaly, that it has worked well, and i have had very few side effects.

I hope it works as well for you.

Take care, and keep us posted.

Re: tomorrow!

good going, Pi!!!!

don't worry too much about the tiredness. these side effects usually go away after a couple of weeks. but i'm sure you know that already. so glad you got yourself a therapist too!!!! go piranna, go piranna, go piranna!!!
