Hey everyone... I've been Bulimic for 5 years now..some times worse than others.. ive been going to a counselor and basically at this point I will try anything. I'm over it! My doc just prescribed me with 20mg. Anyways.. ive been looking over side effects and I don't want to have to be on a medication for too long. I'm hoping it will help me out of my slump and then I can stop taking it... Just curious.. Has anyone taken citalopram for their eating disorder?? If so how long have you been on it? Do you have to stay on it?
