My GP wants to try me on Citalopram (an anti- depressant medication). She thinks it might lift my mood and that might help me to be more focused about my eating etc. She said I might be more 'edgy' at first and when I have looked at the information leaflet it has loads of side effects so I haven't started taking it yet as too worried about what will happen. I feel like i'm in a catch 22 situation, I want to try it as I'm sick of feeling like this but I'm scared to try. My GP said I would only be on 10mg as my body weight is so low so not a high dose. Any advice or suggestions would be really appreciated as I'm at rock bottom at the minute.
