citalopram helped me get back on track


Obviously, talking about depression is a taboo subject. Those who have it have trouble seeking help, and most feel embarassed that they can't handle themselves without taking medication for the problem. I knew I had to do something in order to fix my moods. I walked around always feeling grumpy and hating everything, and no matter how much I knew I was not behaving well, I just couldn't seem to stop myself from being in a bad mood. It got to the point where no one wanted to be around me, and my relationship with my husband and kids was starting to suffer. I finally got help in October. My doctor decided to put me on Citalopram. I had never heard of it before, but anything was worth a shot at that point. I started taking it (one pill a day), and within a week, there was a difference. I could tell my life was going smoother, but it wasn't until I asked my husband how I was doing that I finally learned the truth. He said based on a 1-10 scale (10 being the happiest), he thought BEFORE I got on the meds, I was a 2. Now, on meds, I was a 9. I have found I don't get as upset as I did, and I can handle more thrown at me. I am on the right track to getting my life back. If you need help with depression, ask your doctor about citalopram. ANYTHING is better then living with depression.

Citalopram HBR is a clean anti-depressant


Citalopram HBR (20 Mg) is a very clean anti-depressant.  By clean, I mean that there seems to be no bad side effects which can impar digestive health.  In other words, no constipation issues and limited bowel movements, which can lead to major problems.  I have been taking this drug now for 2 years and have found it to improve my mood swings and depression.  It has also has had a positive effect on my anxiety issues, which have decreased over time while taking this drug.  I used to take Paxil, but had to discontinue it due to the bad side effects I experienced.  Side effects such as weight gain, chronic constipation and mood swings.  To date, I have not experienced any of these conditions while taking Citalopram HBR.  Although, I do not think my drug is as effective on my mental state as Paxil was, I am happy to be without all the negative health conditions I expericed while on an anti-depressant/anti-anxiety drug long-term.
