I started my treatment for GCA Nov. 2014. I am now down to 1mgm and have not had any further headaches.
Just after Christmas and after three lots of antibiotics for uti's,
I started becoming depressed and it has not let up. My GP gave me antidepressants (citalopram) and sleeping tabs. I didn't need the sleeping tabs. I was very reluctant to take the antidepressant's and only took 6, which I know is no use. I know both steroids and GCA have side effects of depression. Has anyone any suggestions - should I grit my teeth and take the anti depressant's regardless?
