Was just wanting a bit of advice about Citalopram!!
Ive been on Citalopram for about 10 years at least for bad anxiety. In the beginning I was on 20mg, then it was increased to 40mg. Over the last few years I tapered down with the GP guidance from 30, to 20 and then finally to 10mg.
Now Ive been on the lowest dose for a couple of years now. I tried coming off it before and ended up having to go back on the 10mg.
Now this year, GP told me I could come off Citalopram as I was on lowest dose so I decided to try again.
I had been taking it intermittently, a tab one day, then off the next.
So I Have not took a tablet in about 2 months. While I am doing better than I did before I am noticing changes in my behaviour. Temper flare-ups to the point of rage, bursting into tears, thinking sad thoughts etc.
It is managable at the moment but I was just wondering if anybody had any advice or knew how long these feelings might last. ??????
I do not want to go back on these tablets and am worried if I tell GP about these feelings he will put me back on them.
Any advice or thoughts ???
