Dear Sir/ Madam
Treatment with steroid may results into psychological difficulty such as anxiety, sadness, fearfulness or unusual experiences. However most of the time such symptoms resolves once steroids medication is stopped. When due to any reason discontinuation is not possible appropriate medication is given. In your case citalopram may be taken with steroid .

Welcome to health care magic forum,
this problem of anxiety and depression is due to withdrawal effect of steroid which is common in patients who are stopping steroids. but why are you taking steroids? for what?
citaoprom can be taken with steroid but have not curative effect.
it will release your anxiety and depression for temporary period.
if you want to get permenent cure then take homeopathy which is given after considering your mental and physical problem both together. So consult good classical homeopath. You will surely get benefit with homeopathy.
