I suffer from Anxiety and Depression since 6th grade and only started getting help about a year ago. I wasn't sure where to post this since it could fall under Anxiety, Bipolar, and Depression. I'll try to keep this short to the point.

I've been on [B]10MG[/B] of [B]Citalopram[/B] ([I]Celexa[/I]) for about 4 weeks now. (starting back on the meds) I feel much better with my anxiety and also depression. Still feeling depressed from time to time. Everyday is different but, I feel like i'm progressing. No side effects what so ever.

Today I had a doctors appointment and spoke about my severe panic attacks when leaving the house.

My doctor perscribed me [B]Clonazepam[/B] ([I]Klonopin[/I]) [B]0.5MG[/B] to take everyday in the morning. (i was hoping to just get 20mg of citalopram) I did research on this and its very scary reading about the side effects, addiction, dependency, and long term effects. I also enjoy an alcoholic beverage once or twice a week. Its something I enjoy in life and I need every little thing right now. All I want is to be myself, find serenity and enjoy life already...

Anyone have some experience with the two together? I take Citalopram in the morning but, my doctor said at least 2-3hrs apart from Clonazepam. I read also, some people say you should only take this when needed. I also need to find out if I can take my herbal vitamins. I have about 15 of them but, have stopped taking them since starting my meds. Any help would be wonderful.

Thank you

p.s. I believe I might start this tonight as I read it helps with sleeping. I can't sleep good anymore. Too much thinking. But if I take it at night, will it help with my morning/afternoon panic. I should have asked my doctor these questions... I believe this med stays in your system unlike Xanax which doesn't.
