I just got back from the doctors. She has put me on citalopram (Celexa, I think is the brand name in the US) for panic disorder and depression. I'm also on a beta blocker, propranolol, for the anxiety symptoms. She asked me to do a questionnaire to see if I was depressed: it was only after I'd filled it in that I realised how bad certain things have become. I'm pretty upset about being back on anti-depressants but I know that if I'm going to go back to uni I need something. I've changed my counsellor back to someone I saw a few years ago, so things are going better there but it isn't enough.
I don't feel that I'm giving a lot back to you all at the moment. I hope to change that as I begin to feel calmer and more in control again. If you have any advice or experiences re the citalopram they would much appreciated.
