Hi, I was wondering if anyone here is now med free after taking medication long term. I've been on citalopram (ranging from 10mg to 40) for the past 12 years. More recently I have been taking beta blockers daily and now temazepam to help with insomnia. I saw the doc today and told him thar at some point in the future I'd like to start a family. He said that he'd wish for me to be totally med free before even trying to conceive. This has freaked me out! Another doctor I saw awhile ago said it should be fine to take citalopram and propranolol while pregnant. I'm not sure which doctor to listen to but ideally I would like to be med free as I would not want to put the baby at risk. Has anyone here managed to stop all meds and live a happy life? I have tried twice before weaning myself off citalopram but suffered horrible withdrawals and ended up going back in them after a few weeks and missing months of work due to the severe reoccurrence of my depression and anxiety.
Any advice would be great, thanks x
