Aches and pains

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, I've been on 30mg cit for 5 years plus. A month ago I reduced the dose to 20mg and since then I've been getting awful aches in my hands, shoulders and knees. Has anyone else had this and did it pass?

    Hi Dave, I've been on 20mg of cit for 7 months and have been experiencing aches also. Not an everyday thing it comes and goes. Never had injuries in tese areas to make me think arthritis.

    Hello Dave,

    Yep, it seems that aches and pains are pretty wwidespread even after 5 years. I was on and off for 20 years  and abruptly stopped 3 weeks ago and have had even more joint and muscular discomfort but it is passing now.  So yes I am confident it will pass

    Hi Dave,

    Are you lowering the dose with your doctor’s knowledge by chance?  Reason I am asking is, if you are going off slowly with your doctor knowing/advice.  If you are doing it on your own, and not doing it slowly, it sounds like some withdrawal symptoms.  After being on Cital for 5 years, you will need to go off very slowly, maybe only 10 mg at a time, for a couple of weeks at a time, or even slower.  Remember Cital is a powerful med, and you will have to be just as careful going off, as you were going on, or your body will no be happy!  I would give your doctor a call before you make anymore changes.  I wish you good luck Dave!
