I have taken 20mg of seroxat 2/3 times a week for the last 25 years..,if I didn't need them every day I didn't take them. When I felt anxious or irritable I took one.. needed more when I was under a lot of stress or had fly or illness.. even went up to 40mf a day for a short period after a severe bout of flu! 

I stopped altogether about 4/5?months ago. I can cope with the pings in my head but the pounding in my chest like there are trains running through is not at all nice. I am very irritable and have no patience. Can anybody give me any indication how long this will last and if there is anything other than prescription drugs that I can take to speed things up to feel less anxious. My confidence has gone and my head feels like it is going to busty at times!!
