A member asked:

Are antidepressants okay to take like cipralrex to calm your mind?

3 doctors weighed in across 2 answers

Yes they are helpful: How long have you been taking cipralex? It sometimes takes about 2-3 weeks before you feel benefits. If after that you are still worried you might want to ask your prescriber for another type of med such as an anti-anxiety for a short trial period to help with your anxiety. Good luck again.

Yes: You can take to decrease the stress or anxiety and to calm down. For long term use, it's wise to consult with a psychiatrist.
