OT again - Medications (for us, not skids)
So steplife causes an abundance of stress, compounded with our jobs, I'd imagine a large population of us are medicated, so I figured this would be a good place to ask about it. I've been given two (new) things at my last appointment.
Celexa(ssri inhibitor) - An anti-depressant even though I told the doctor that I wasn't depressed? It's day one of this, and I feel really weird, like tipsy, but able to function. Also, why is he giving me anti-depressants - he didn't really give me a clear answer other than (it helps with anxiety). Has anyone else on ssri inhibitors had similar experiences?
Ativan(benzo) - Said for emergency use only, take it in the case of a panic attack. If I popped one of these with a classroom of students, will I still be able to function? - For anyone that has taken benzo's in the past.
I am a teacher, and I did ask our nurse what the policy for prescription medication was, and she said that if it's prescribed, it's fine.
