merlin fluff Posted February 7, 2007 Share Posted February 7, 2007 I am currently on citalopram which is working very well on the depression at a low dose. Unfortunately it makes my anxiety a lot worse, especially with the constant upset tummy I get with it which makes the agoraphobia much worse. My anxiety feels SO MUCH BETTER when I come off it but I get only a month or so before depression comes crashing down I don't want to keep taking benzos to calm the anxiety. I kinda discussed with my gp last time about going on another AD at the same time as citalopram that specifically targets anxiety. I said I'd think about it. I see him again soon and think this is a route I'd like to take. Just wondering if you know what other ADs can be taken with citalopram? Especially sedating ones, that cause constipation and have no postural hypotension as a side effect (phenelzine nearly killed me ). I like to look up drugs before taking them as it negates some of my great fear of medications.. though I know my doctor will have the last say in what i take!!
