Thought this was interesting: Anxiety:

80 to 90% of individuals with Major Depressive Disorder also have anxiety symptoms (e.g., anxiety, obsessive preoccupations, panic attacks, phobias, and excessive health concerns).

Separation Anxiety may be prominent in children.

About one third of individuals with Major Depressive Disorder also have a full-blown anxiety disorder (usually either Panic Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or Social Phobia).

Anxiety in a person with major depression leads to a poorer response to treatment, poorer social and work function, greater likelihood of chronicity and an increased risk of suicidal behavior.

Hmm opiate withdrawal can cause depression; maybe that's what happened with me (for those who don't know I broke my wrist 6 weeks ago so I was on a lot of oramorph and codeine)

depression and anxiety always seem to go hand-in-hand.

That's ******** (just checked the BNF to be sure...no mention of any specialist guidance. It's really expensive, I'll bet that's why she didn't give it. It's the sister drug of citalopram, just more potent, same chemical make up.

But anyway, hope citalopram works out for you. At least it works for anxiety too so that should give you some relief.
Yep, I'm pretty sure it's a cost thing too. But she wouldn't budge. It only says it helps with depression on the leaflet, but it says different stuff online. I'll try to switch to the other when I see my GP in York.

I started taking it last night. I feel sick! But I'm sure that will wear off.

How are you?

Could be. I know it's not the same, but I found it hard when I stopped taking valium. Did you come off it gradually or did you just stop taking it?

I think my depression kicked in after my anxiety, as I was quite an anxious person on and off for three years (before I got depressed). I wonder what changed things.

t only says it helps with depression on the leaflet, but it says different stuff online.
I think that's because in Britain citalopram is only licensed for depression and panic disorder; whereas escitalopram is licensed for depression, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, OCD, and panic disorder. I think, as vsm says, some doctors are reluctant to prescribe it because the evidence for its superior efficacy to citalopram is weak and there's a big price difference. A month's worth of citalopram at 10mg costs 99p; a month's worth of escitalopram at 10mg costs £14.91 (although escitalopram is more potent).

I found the nausea from citalopram passed after a few days.

Aw mate. :console: If she wouldn't dance with you then she's probably not worth the hassle... If you still like her though, why not see if she's avaliable for a coffee at some point, no pressure (if you're in one of her classes, you could use work as an excuse?)? It sucks when you get rejected, been there many times. You're not a **** up, you can't control what other people feel.
god i still like her. haven't felt like that about a girl for years. knowing she's not interested will make it so difficult now whenever i bump into her. and for some reason all my housemates think i screwed her last night, when i was actually just crying to myself on a bench. so i'll have to tell them that at some point, which will be fun. for a whole week they'd all being telling me that she was waiting for me to make the move and that she liked me, so i guess that was all ********. what a comedown. i also sent her some drunken facebook message early this morning which i'd forgotten about until just now, where i incoherently say she looked gorgeous and i was really sorry for nothing in paticular. ****.
been stuck in my room the whole day, too ashamed to show my face. wanted to cry all day, only just managed it. in a strange way, it feels good.
this has really hit me hard. all the talk that she liked me cheered me up and helped me forget about the inevitably **** christmas break just around the corner. but no, now i'll have to spend this christmas holed up in my room in canada in the knowledge that no one cares about me. just like last christmas.

sorry for hogging this thread.

Oh my god, what a terrible terrible day Can't be dealing with family arguments like today. It was all about my brother not doing any work and stuff and then Dad picked him up off his bed and sort of pushed him downstairs (he didn't push him, he walked very closely behind him so my brother had to move down the stairs) and then my brother ran out the house with no shoes on, i went after him, couldn't find him, then mum went and found him and i had to drive and pick them up. dad said he'd go to his parents house but he hasn't so yeah.....major major tension and no one is talking to each other.

Just written my CV so feel like I've achieved something. It's not very good though.

How is everyone? :hugs:

So I spent £7 on a weeks worth of Citalopram. How annoying. She didn't want to prescribe any more than that as she wasn't following up my treatment. I need to send off one of those forms. I have spent so much money on prescriptions this year, it's ridiculous. I wish I went on Job Seekers Allowance in my gap year, as the hours I did work didn't add up to much.

That's probably why doctors don't mention there's an Efexor XR. Perhaps it costs more?
