Second opinion from JA
I would like to answer you actual questions and I have respectful disagreement with the above answer.
In fact anxiety disorder is properly treated with an SSRI medication and if citalopram is not doing the job it needs to be changed.
Although lorazapam is OK for acute use..when needed only, you are correct to be concerned...steady use is associated WITH cognitive dysfunction..with as little as 6 weeks of use. Recent major reviews and a recent definitive prospective study have concluded that premature death is associated with the use of these drugs and a large contributor, for unknown reasons, is cancer.
This of course you need to discuss with your doctor.
You need a neurological workup to make sure that you do not have another problem, such as B12 deficiency, which needs early intervention
, a neurological exam, maybe MRI, assessment for depression, etc.
As to mold. It is not correct that it is just ok mold and bad mold.
There is the issue of allergy, and individual sensitivity, and we do not know how everyone is affected by each mold. Mold health effects study is in its infancy.
Allergy testing is indicated in some cases.
Avoiding overgrowth of mold is always a good idea. Prudent.
Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......
