Anyone coming off citalopram to try for a baby

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi there

I have been on 40mg for two years for anxiety disorder and depression. I have reduced my dose gradually since July to 20mg. I plan to reduce to 10mg when I have two weeks off work. I find my concentration isn't great during withdrawn and insomnia. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice?

thanks

    thank Maria

    spoke to my GP about this but he said it won't be necessary as he's found many people go from 20- 0 without too many issues. I had asked about the drops but he said the dosing isn't that accurate.  X

    Hi I tried to come off mine when I found out I was pregnant 2 1/2 years ago but due to my crazy hormones I was all over the place. My gp told me before I tried to come off them I didn't need to so I ended up taking 20 mg throughout my pregnancy and my little girl was fine. X
