Hi I've been on citalopram 40 mg. I tried lowering and it messed me up. I was upped to 60 mg citalopram to even me out so they could lower me back down. But a manufacturer change in medicine messed that up. Was switched over to fluoxetine Dec 8th 60 mg. by a cross taper. The 60 was about to drive me nuts so my psychologist lowered it to 40 mg on Jan 2nd. (So seven weeks tomorrow on 40.) At nearly 4 weeks I started feeling better for almost two weeks and thought my good days were here. But last week on Jan 15th I went backwards and not feeling real well with side effects tight chest, heart burn, spaced out, ears ringing, and anxiety a.m. and depression noon to afternoon. Today (nearly 1weeks into this set back) has been the worst so far I broke down this afternoon after work and haven't been able to settle down too much yet just crying uncontrollable. My poor wife just wanna be well and strong for her and my kids. Is this part of the adjustment phase I mean is it normal for the medicine? People have said it is but I just need some reassurance. Does this get better?
