Looks Like I’m Allergic to my new Anti-Depressant

ms multiple sclerosis depression itching

For the last few days I have been dealing with really itchy palms, it’s horrible… Obviously itching them doesn’t help but Benadryl does, one problem, it knocks me out! But what other choice do I have when I am taring my skin apart itching my hands? In fact, last night I even felt it on the top of my feet! So I did some research and pinned it on my citalopram which can cause  itching. Emailed my doctor who actually replied! He told me to stop taking it, wait a week, and email him back… A week? Why do doctors think I have all the time in the world?? My depression was already debilitating and it’s only getting worse especially when dealing with something as stupid as sever itching! It’s the little things that tend to push people over the edge… I NEED to be on something…

Right now I feel like a wreck, I feel miserable… I can’t even pinpoint each symptom, each ache and pain, it feels like they are all just mixing together into one crappy feeling… On top of this I am extremely fatigued and trying to find a job while racing against the clock to pay the bills… I feel worse now then I did before but I can’t get disability help because I LOOK better right now so I MUST be better. So between the stress of my health and the stress of getting a job to pay the bills, I am growing even more depressed… I just want to lay down and die right now because it’s so hard!
