    Uh hello? I listened to your vid last night (i was tired, but awake, so I
    just listened couldn’t watch do to dreary eyes)…I am on day 2 of
    citalopram. I look wretched now. Why? Well I have been awake for quite a
    while. In general I am doing ok, dealt with 2 bouts of nausea and stomach
    issues in the past two days and dizinesss. But insomnia has kicked in.
    During this time, I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your vid. I
    myself don’t have the courage to make a vid being I look bug eyed and a bit
    frantic now. But…The good news is I am much more organized for now which
    has given me much ability to get some quick stuff done. Do I like being up
    at 4:00 am? No, but I can deal with it. Thanks for your vid. I am really
    dedicated to giving this med a chance for the full run and not runing away
    from it in the middle of the course of two weeks. I am on day 2 and in
    about 3 hours on day 3. lol. Can’t sleep now and wired as anyone can be
    aside from street drugs but feeling good.

    I’m on day two with these, and I’m feeling like hell. My muscles have all
    of a sudden became weak, I’m suffering with this tremor and every time I
    yawn I feel the need to vomit. I think my dosage is a little too high for
    me but I’m only on 20mg. But I’ll try one more day and if it’s still the
    same I’ll just lower the dosage.

    If they’re so good why did you want to get off of them? These pills are
    slowly damaging your frontal lobe as the serotonin causes inflammation and
    calcification after a while, I would try to think of something else if I
    were you – unless you don’t care about brain damage. It is in fact a
    chemical lobotomy of a sort. Too bad it’s so difficult to get off of. There
    are dozens of natural options you could look into if you could weed out
    possible causes such as magnesium deficiency or thyroid disorder, etc..
    Good luck with that!

    i dont understand why my doctor gave me this shit. i told him im not
    depressed. i just came in for a physical and yearly tb test for work and
    walked out with this shit. wtf? he thinks im depressed and i was feeling
    pretty good when i came in. It does feel chill though. I don’t know if
    hes trying to get me addicted to this shit. I’m gonna ask for medical
    marijuana next time i see his dumbass.

    Please look into adrenal fatigue. I wouldn’t want to stay on cipratolam
    long term; it’s not a long term fix. The longer you stay on it, the harder
    it is to get off it. To get off, you have to taper very slowly. You have to
    reduce by a small amount every ten days. There are natural ways to cure
    your anxiety. Herbs and supplements.

    Like the video , Im on the same, for me its similar been the same way since
    I was 15 , every time I went into a room , I’d examine everyone ,
    everything , constantly watching everyone , assessing everyone for risk
    made me good at judging if a kick off or something was about to take place
    just by watching peoples body language etc lived like this for many years ,
    never had any friends , don’t like / trust people , hate it when my routine
    gets thrown or something new gets added . my life is like clock work . even
    my kids are the same , but then I started to struggle things were getting
    worse , struggled with being suspicious of every one and everything , very
    short with everyone , became a detective constantly watching for signs .
    pushed everyone to a point when they said I had a problem still carried on
    , then I started having no sleep at all , lay there thinking of events and
    replaying them seeing what I could of done better , then I would come up
    with imaginary scenarios and that carried on then it got to the point where
    the thoughts would speed up like a “enterprise in warp speed” faster and
    faster and faster to the point I would panic as I lost control and the room
    closed in on me , I’d get out of bed at all hours to breath . was diagnosed
    with paranoid anxiety and put on 10mg which didn’t do anything 20mg seems
    to stop the paranoia and anxiety , but I seem to have undergone personality
    changes I’m a lot more darker then I used to be nothing used to phase me
    anyhow the sort of person who finds funerals funny , but this is far worse
    now .

  12. jayozzy666 says:

    I’m going through this at the moment, Iv been prescribed these tablets and
    also being sent to a psychiatrist. I’m finding it really hard to cope and
    as I also have depression I’m really struggling. Feels like there’s no way

  13. joeyprimetime88 says:

    Great video dude! In the past I’ve been on Zoloft, paxil, and diazepam.
    Nothing, besides marijuana has been as effective as Citalopram/celexa for
    my GAD.

  14. luiso8815 says:

    I feel your pain I have bipolar disorder myself I can be on top of the
    world for 4 months and then for 2 or 3 months I’ll be crying and feeling
    sad! Not even going to work. I hate having panic attacks I have to carry
    water, baby wipes, and Vicks everywhere I go it’s my defense mechanism. I’m
    willing to try celexa because I’m tired of fighting it on my own, I’ve
    tried lexapro and had great results but stopped after about a month because
    of the hot flashes, low libido and headaches. Can you tell me if I should
    give celexa a try friend???

  22. sarah brown says:

    Your extreamly informative in your videos and easy to follow-i wish i could
    be you. in my videos i make no sense and end up explaining nothing jst
    venting my feelings and looking like a moaning hag… Hope your still going
    strong today :)

  23. jaywill4ever says:

    Citalopram helped me a little bit, but it wasn’t enough to make a
    difference in my life. It seemed to work better for me than Buspirone and
    Sertraline did. I still have anxiety problems and I’m unable to work. I
    think I may have to try Valium or some other benzodiazepine.

  24. sukiesoya says:

    I’m on Citalopram and Lamotrigine
