Without this drug, I would be in an insane asylum! Cleared my head out and calmed me down. I take the 3mg pill once before bedtime. Great drug, along with my others.

I have been taking this med now for about 6 months and the only thing i can say about it is run away from this one quickly. Do not even consider taking this med.

I take Citalipram and Atenolol and Lasix, I just found out today that taking these together could cause heart problems and Stroke and possibly Death. I will n ... Show Full Comment
