My OB put my on 20mg p/day of citalopram for PPD, anxiety, and depression. I lost my insurance and am out of refills, so I had to immediately stop when I ran out. I feel so down and tired. I don't want to do anything anymore, and my anxiety is thru the roof; I don't sleep at night because I'm terrified that something will happen to my daughter although she is in no danger... The withdrawal symptoms are awful and I really need to get back on... My hair is drastically thinning and I have not been feeling like myself at all... Suggestions? Please!
Also target is good. They have a $20 yearly membership card for prescriptions and you can save a large amount of money.
However, you are experiencing withdrawal and need to get back on one month and start to taper. Contact your doctor and there may be samples or more ideas. Never go cold turkey on meds. The troubles can be dangerous or very uncomfortable. You can also talk to a pharmacist.
Costco and other clubs let you get meds without the membership fees. Some quick calling and you ought to have your answer. Wishing you good results.
Citalopram is on the 4$ formulary at Target and Walmart, I believe. Best get your doctor to call in script after you find the cheapest place to get it. You need the medication it sounds like and may I add, have you had your thyroid hormones checked lately? Thinning hair is a sign of a problem.
Sorry my friend as I made a mistake. Go to the Walgreens savings club. It has the discounts at $20 per person or $35 per family. You can enter your medication and see what it will cost. It will be affordable.
Citalopram at 20mg per day with card and a ninety day total at Walgreens will cost $10.00. I suggest you do this right away. Yes, there is the card cost, but talk to them and maybe start at the single person and switch to family later. Perhaps they can do that. Sure is cheaper that way.
Targets is good, and various other major drug stores are doing the same. A little more looking if there is no Walgreens. Any pharmacist can help.
Hi there KTE. I was just wondering if you had a free clinic in your area. Most places do. You may have to drive further, I don't know. I'm pretty sure that's a common thing. If and when you find one, then that's a great place to go. A doc @ the clinic can write the script. If you know the manufactures name of the med you need, you can call, or email them and explain your situation and they'll send your meds to you every mos. free. It's called "Patient Assistance program." I think between the 2 of them you will get bak on track. Get 2 the clinic first, and ask the doc if they hav any samples of yor med. They may hav some. You never know until u ask. I pray you find the help you need.
