Saffron - really wise words, that ring very true to my experience. Thanks, you have a great way of putting things.

What book were you reading, if you don't mind me asking?

I was on citalopram on a high dose of 60mg for several months and tolearted it fairly well. I've since been on another ad and now am starting with escitalopram which is another version of it (sorry I don't know the science behind it) now on 10mg but I think it is stronger than citalopram. Time will tell with it now. I certainly don't think there the worse types of anti depressants. I am going to be taking it with a dose of lithium to augment it which I think makes it work better.

Ive been on 20mg of citalopram for about 4 years....but i made the mistake of thinking they were not working so i used to stop taking them.

I didnt think they made a difference but my wife saw a vast improvment when i took them on a regular basis.

So that and recieving proper help at last, things are better....slow steps as always.

KP i think that is cipralex the same as me, 10mg, put me on that when I went of head on the other. they are given in 10mg becasue it is equivilant to 40mg or ,say, prozac. but I think the way it works is different as I do not have a problem on these at all.
