Hi, I started on 20mg last October because I had got very low with one thing or another and my doc here in France prescribed it. I am so glad he did because 2 weeks after I started on them my mum in law was taken ill and suddenly passed away which was very unexpected. It was a very stressful time because we had to rush back to England for 2 weeks which wasn't good. In the mentime i had a routine blood test for my underactive thyroid and that came back with lots of things wrong so i had to go and see a blood specialist last November, had to have a bone marrow biopsy because they had to do lots of tests and finally this week i have been diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. I am only 39, married with 2 children of 16 and 14 and we are all devastated. I know i shall receive the best treatment i could possibly get over here but i'm not looking forward to it. Anyway my point of writing this is to say that I am so thankful that i am on Citalopram because it's helped me get through these last few months because i really don't know how i would have coped otherwise, and hopefully it will keep me going in the coming months. I'll keep you posted if it works! lol!!
Take care ppl Lorraine xx
