I’m on day 4 of taking citalopram after refusing all types of antidepressants for 17 years started when I was 16 I’m now 33 but this year has pushed me right over the edge after losing my dad in may 2020 and then this horrid virus (which sets my health anxiety disorder off) then stresses with work etc just been a nightmare of a year.

I get all tense and have pains in chest and now can’t even sit still or drive for 5 mins without reaching for a diazepam and checking my heart pulse (which I paid to have checked and was all OK) I also had gastritis a month ago which made me even worse like a vicious circle which is totally not the way I want to be but my body does it’s own thing so I decided to start this and I have bad diarrhea, dizziness and nausea I’m hoping this settles after reading reviews they all sound positive and to stick with it so I’m going to just hope this is the answer that is going to help lift my struggles from the past 17 years.
