the hospital have been talking to my therapist and have decided to put me on cipralex (say escitalopram on the box), though they've been unclear in telling me what for. i know they've said it is an anti-depressant but it says on the box that it's for anxiety disorders as well and all they've said about that is that my therapist is coming in to talk to me about that. has anyone been on ciprlaex before? if so, why were you put on it? and has it helped?
