My blog has always been an open and honest safe space, where mental illness can be discussed without judgment. Something I haven’t discussed on here before is my medication. I have been taking medication for generalised anxiety disorder with depressive and obsessive episodes for around 5 years. In that time I have switched medication a total of three times, each time very different. When I was switching I looked for other bloggers that had written about their experiences switching meds – I couldn’t find any, so I thought I would write one.
A Little disclaimer – I am just a patient sharing my experience of various medicines and I am definitely not a medical professional. Everyone reacts to different medications differently.
Medication 1: Citalopram (Celexa, Cipramil)
Citalopram is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) – meaning it should increase the amount of serotonin in the brain as well as regulate serotonin levels.
