Citalopram is the SSRI that most people seem to find the easiest to tolerate so is a good first choice. It is likely to be a better long term bet than clonazepam.

As with all antidepressants it might produce a range of side-effects initially, including heightened anxiety, which is why you're being started on a low dose and the clonazepam should help with this too. It typically takes antidepressants 3-12 weeks to kick-in from the time you begin taking a therapeutic dose which is usually 20mg/day for citalopram.

NOTE: I'm not a doctor, and particularly not yours, so there may be factors I'm unaware of. Therefore all suggestions are general in nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.
