Hi all, its been at least six months since I posted on here. This place was a lifesaver for me during my start up process. katecogs and lois were the standout support i remember the most and that we all need. My time on citalopram was a mixed bag. It made me a lot worse for the first 3 months. Things never really got 'good' on it for me so I decided to wean myself off them about 4 months ago very slowly..... I suffered almost every side effect going on these whilst on them, particularly the first five months. so i've decided to once again to try to be med free and use coping tactics should anxiety and panic arise. I just became sooo lost exhausted and confused on these.I was waiting and hoping for something to happen like it did when I was on PAXIL before. There was no 'lightbulb on' day for me on citalopram. I was on it for a total of 11 months starting at 20mg and moving to 30mg 6 weeks in. I will UPDATE THIS thread as time passes for my and any one elses benefit who wants to do the same and happy in the meantime to nswer others questions regarding my personal choice to stop taking citalopram. Good LUCK to all in the new year, particularly my distant suffering friends and those who helped support me last year. Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart. Wishing you all the very best for the future. MANNY❤
