Anxiety pills after morphine OD

Patient : Hey there doctor. i cant say for certain but i think it was about 8 or 9 months ago now i suffered a morphine overdose, after that i started getting the shakes alot, my neck and my hands, also had a massive increase in anxiety. i stopped doing drugs and cut back on my drinking a lot, i ate all the right food stuffs and even managed some sporadic exercise. the shakes have lessened some but are far from gone. so i went to see my local doctor to get something to calm me down and i was given a scrip for citalopram, i didnt mention the OD and provided no trigger event for my anxiety. I read this stuff can mess with ur breathing and so on. Am I okay to be taking them given the situation? is there anything else i can be doing to improve the healing process? thanks for your time.
