Hi there,

There are loads of active threads here about taking citalopram for anxiety. It might be worth reading through them and joining in. I'm sure there will be people in a similar situation to you.

Take care

You're welcome and good luck. Enjoy the nice weather if you've got some and take your dogs out for a walk - they look like a handful!

Re: anxiety/depression

Hey Sheffield, I too live in Sheffield and have been on citalopram in the past I am attending an IAPT appointment in an hour and I am slightly worried as to weather it will be practical or will make me upset, feel free to PM me Sheffield, It's good to see a local person with the same feelings, peace

Re: anxiety/depression

Hi
I am on Citalopram and apart from making me feel a little tired they are working fine,much better then the seroxat i took a few years back,my anxiety/Panic levels have returned to near normal,and the best bit is i have stopped using alcohol to self medicate.

But although Citalopram has worked for me others may be different.

Good luck to you though.

Richard.
