citalopram baby, yes!

It has worked wonders for me in the areas of depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder.
My work ethic if high, I love to socialize (after 2 or more pints) at the pub with my friends; not always close friends but people I have a good rapport with and I have shared good times with, although I will always go with a close friend and then talk with other people. I could never enter the pub without a close friend to fall back on.
I just need some employment; part-time employment that is, I have far too many hobbies and interests to work full time. Besides, being around people for 40 hours a week would kill me in 2.

SSRIs can be very effective but I would still exercise some caution and no overdo alcohol. Also, do not suddenly stop taking the citalopram if you are feeling well (as some do).

Now I am without any medication and the moods are exactly the same, but at least I am able to clear think and manage my affairs where on either med I could not and got in all sorts of problems which made matters worse, far worse than they should have been.
Now I was a heavy drinker on meds and not, I am not now, but due to recent med tests I actually found out my internal organs are in better shape than many fifteen years younger than myself, the GP was impressed and I do not look after my health through being very self destructive.
But SSRI's are only licensed for human use, there is no indication yet that they are safe and their action is based on a theory not an absolute understanding, where on American forums they are suggesting SSRI's will be banned from use soon due to what is happening to many on them.
Edited to add, there is no one in my life to help me get through the day, no carers, no MH nurses, no nothing, I am completely on my own and the GP, they don't care.

Yes I do drink alcohol, perhaps once a week, although I do know my limit.
Most ageing I believe is due to stress on the organs. I do eat a good diet without meat, excess sugar, and I do get a good amount of green vegetable into my diet.
Regarding lethal side-effects, are these due to normal dose intake, or overdose? How lethal are we talking. Should I be worried? I do feel very healthy at the moment.
Even though I feel good I will not stop taking the medication, life was hell before I started, I do not want to go back to that.
Bit of a mess this post, sorry, I'm too busy too edit it.

But precious little information on adults experience of the stuff on the UK site, where the focus is as ever in this country on children where adults well we are largely forgotten.
But if you want a laugh with learning check out CrazyMeds ;
Oh and the author of the website is Aspie, so you know you will get weird information very few others know about.
