basically I've been on both of the above for 6 - 7 months and they've caused me to have anxiety over my mental health and depression which is severe around period time, so the physc nurse believes they've actually unbalanced my hormones and is causing my moods etc to actually magnify...
last thursday under the advice of a phsyciatric nurse I dropped my citalopram down to 20mg from 30, and my quetiapine from 50mg to 25mg
the past few days I've felt very sick mostly morning when its bad, wake up soaked in cold sweat and headachey, i also have extremley vivid dreams and nightmares and I dont sleep well at all, I also wake up with a bad stomach and have to go to the toilet where I'll have loose stools sometimes dirreah.
my question is, how do I know which med is causing this withdrawal and how long it will last?
I have been told to stay at 20mg citalopram for 2 weeks then drop down to 10, and the same with the quetiapine, stay at 25mg for 2 weeks then stop altogether so I have 1 week left until I drop again.
I've been on a Facebook page called "citalopram/celexa should be illegal" and have read alot of horror stories about withdrawal from citalopram being very delayed, and the horror stories I've read have left me scared for my life to be honest is it rare or usual for it to be delayed as much as a month?
