Slurred?: It sounds like you feel very slowed down, but "slurred" words and thoughts can also come from using alcohol or various other drugs. Please talk with the doctor prescribing your citalopram about this. Stop using the isochronic tones. If done by a licensed and well-trained professional, hypnotherapy is not likely to have effects like these. If not working with a psychiatrist, please do so.

Probably not: Clarify 'slurred'. If it is paroxysmal (sudden) in onset) and lasts only a few minutes one would be conserned about focal seizures or even a blood flow issue. Focal seizures tend to occur more often at night durring sleep stage transitions.

Autosuggestion: Hypnosis involves focused concentration and autosuggestion to create one of a number of different altered states of consciousness. For the purposes of self-healing and personal growth, we aim for a very specific state of consciousness, one of serenity, acceptance, and exquisite presence. This state can be used to give yourself affirmations that act as positive post-hypnotic suggestions.

Yes: Techniques involving hypnosis can be very helpful in identifying past stressful events which can lead to symptoms. Sometimes, the symptoms can be relieved without delving into past experiences, but when the symptoms are not helped or relapse, hypnosis can indeed be very effective.

Real: Hypnosis can be very useful in "uncovering the subconscious" much quicker tha with other methods. And uncovering the subconsious can be the key to dealing with certain annoying symptoms. Do not confuse stage hypnosis with the serious use of hypnosis in medical situations.
