View Full Version : Just stopped taking Prop...

Hi All

For the last few months I've been on 20mg of prop to help with the physical symptoms of anxiety and elevated blood pressure.

Now my doc and I agree that it might be worth giving Citalopram a try to help with the anxiety/depression.

The thing is she told me to stop taking the propanonol for a week before going on the Cit in case of an interaction.

It's been 3 days since I stopped taking the prop and my anxiety has rocketed back to how I felt at the start of the year! My heart is beating crazy fast, I can't sleep, mind feels like it's on loop, it's really hard to concentrate on anything outside of how I'm feeling, no motivation :weep:

Does 20mg of prop really interact with cit? Now I'm freaking about how much more the anxiety is going to come on when I first go on the cit - I can't bear much more than what I have right now!

I felt like I was making a slow and gradual improvement over the last few months now I just feel like I'm back at square one...

HI Flubby,

When I was taking citalopram my Gp gave me propananol to help with the increased anxiety that can sometimes happen when first taking this med...so I dont think there was any interaction between the 2???

Sorry to hear your anxiety has gone up again...perhaps you could ask your gp again???

Hope you feel better soon.
