I'm on Citalopram and Pregnabalin, I did without my Citalopram the other week for 4days, because I ordered it on my script and the doctors missed it off, So by the time I rang them to tell them, it was days after I could pick them up. Anyway I wondered what was going on because I felt trembly, anxious, I was running round at 100 miles an hour, I felt as if there wasn't a second to spare, so weard. Now I'm back on it I feel back to normal, well as normal as I can be. I heard it can be very dangerous if you come off this all at once, and I don't want to go there again.

Saw gp told me psychiatrist will not see me,which knew really.still no meds due to rhumetologist have concerns and speaking to my dr which my dr said she only really does that when she has real concerns about someone,me and specialist come up with a plan as gp will not take me off anti depressant or swap it going to try them both together but have regular ECG as causes heart problems and do not want that with everything else,also same day as rhumetologist I saw gastro dr who diagnosed Ibs he sent fax to gp requesting increase in citalopram but we tried this and sends me manic,told gp what gastro dr said he said he was thinking about increase i told up its sends me manic and he said he knew but was on another med so advocate is coming gp thurs to say I have agreed to try increase and try pregabalin with it,I think my gp will issue the increase see how I go and then add the pregabalin,if the increase does not work look for another option,he even said he does not know what physchatrist is playing at,basically got so much going on no support and at breaking point and can not get help.

Tracie....it seems like too many cooks in the kitchen adding whatever spice they choose to the stew.

Your Dr's need to be on the same page. I would talk to your GP and ask why so many contradictions anjmpld what he thinks will work for you. If you don't get clear answers then you need to get new Drs.
