Anyone have much knowledge of or experience with Citalopram?
My doctor has prescribed me Citalopram to deal with my anxiety. I was a bit wary because I know a lot of these prescription anti-depressants/anti-anxiety drugs can lead to addiction, but she assured me this wasn't the case with this particular drug. Looking up online, while it is considered to be non-addictive, some people seem to have reported withdrawals when coming off, which is a little concerning.
Is this something to be worried about (or with sensible dosages, is this avoidable)? And are there any other issues it may cause (I'm always worried about how these things may impact cognition)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have been taking NAC and it's been a fantastic low level mood stabilizer. In fact i have postponed a psych appointment to try out a full on mood stabilizer b/c this has worked so well for me. It makes me feel less sensitive to things and more grounded, and i can think thru my reactions more. it is very cheap and very harmless, doesnt interact with much, and is therefore great thing to experiment with without much risk. and there is actually a lot of research on it
The positive effects of Citalopram: Orgasm inhibition, you will last a lot on it, but you will feel less.
I really want to try Moclobemide after reading many positive experiences on it, but trying to get a doctor to prescribe is proving difficult. I'm at the point of considering writing to my doctors and specifically asking for it or being given a reason why I can't have it.

Suan Zao Ren,
