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.
