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!
