Switching From Celexa To A Natural Alternative ... Need Advice!
Hello everyone! I'm new here and I'm looking to see if anybody would be willing to offer me some advice. Thanks in advance!
I'm a 37 year old wife and mother of two boys. I have been on prescription anti-anxiety / anti-depressants since I was 17 years old. I have been on everything on the market because after being on them for so many years I've experienced the poop-out effect and nothing worked anymore other than one. I'm currently on 20 mg of Celexa 2x/day. It has worked perfectly, but unfortunately, I went from 140lb to 170lbs in 6 months. I workout constantly and eat healthy. I need to get off of it but I'm scared of the withdrawal and that there aren't anymore medications to try . That being said, I'm looking to go the homeopathic route. My main symptoms when I'm not on the meds is extremely anxiety, irritability, depression, insomnia, alcohol dependency, lethargy. Without medications, I feel like I'm on a downward spiral. Are there any supplements or group of supplements that will help me cope with these issues once I stop the Celexa?
