I am almost free from withdrawal symptoms after 2 months approx, from taking Citalopram for 6+ months. I felt better for a while, lost weight (needed to) felt generally lighter in mood ( dysthymia). Though after 6 months was questioning how much they were helping and I hd developed a persistent cough. Cough has now gone. Though i think I have acid reflux, symptoms being discomfort in my back ribs. However, I am very fatigued now, having hot flushes at night ( peri-menopausal? 52yrs old) and as I have an 8 year old child I am concerned as to whether I needed to have taken them for longer. Are these still withdrawal symptoms. I worry if I take them long term 'What then' ...dystymia doesn't just go away. And the long term effect of taking 'drugs'. I am loathed to take what I feel is chemical induced hard core meds. I think I am probably moderately depressed though that seems my permanent datum point, or at least 'mildly', if I were to score myself. Just feeling bemused as to what to do. My child is with me all the time as he struggles with separatin issues and I am a lone parent! My day to day life can be quite challenging! Any constructive thoughts welcomed.
