Patient :My wife stopped taking citalopram for depression and anxiety after 7 years cold turkey 2 weeks ago. 1 week ago we were planning a cruise now she wants a divorce. Could this be withdrawal or do i need lawyer?
Thanks for using "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Considering that she had a long standing depression and stopped the medicines cold turkey, her current change in the decision could be possible be due to the relapse of her illness. But its difficult o be certain about that. It would be wise to get a doctor consult and get her mental state examination done.
Hope this helps,
Wish you a good health.
