Hi I was taking 20 mg citalopram for approximately 10 years mostly with exceptions of the months I was pregnant I stopped taking it a few months ago and feel awful I started taking brain food 5-htp but not having any effect after a week I was wondering is herbal alternatives any good or shall I go back to citalopram as currently feeling horrendous
Scooby, you need to do what is best for you as you're probably having a relapse. If herbal alternatives worked well and were truly safe EVERYONE would be taking them successfully.
Have a frank discussion with your doctor/psychiatrist/nurse practitioner and let them know exactly how you are feeling ~ and I hope you're feeling better very quickly. Wildcat
