I have been given citalopram 10mg for anxiety. I took my first dose along with a 0.25mg Xanax at my doctors office Friday. We decided to do that there because of my extreme fear of medications. The Xanax did calm me, and I had a decent day. Since then I have failed to take my medicines out of fear. I have zero support from my wife who believes anxiety is fake. She also likes to leave home and leave me alone when I am having attacks. Being alone is a trigger. Is there anybody who can talk some sense into me and help me get started on my citalopram and stick with it? Can anybody help me get all the negative things I have heard about that drug out of my head. On a side note, since I took that first dose I am sleeping very hard and it is hard to wake up. That has me a bit concerned. Thank you!
Hey HerbfromAccounting, Please don't be afraid to take your medication, it is designed to help you. It is very important to have support when you feel the anxiety coming on. I'm all alone & have no support! What negative things have you heard about citalopram? Everyone metabolizes drugs differently! Don't read into everything so much!
Take care & stay well
