I was on 10 mg of citalopram for 10 months, weaned off over 2, completely done for over 1. Supplementing with 100mg of 5-HTP a day, which I don't think I need, just taking as a precaution.
I haven't had any panic attacks, insomnia, or GAD during the withdrawal stage. Praise God!!! Dealing with heightened anger, irritability, and mild anxiety which is probably normal.
I will be 40 this year...yay :-\
I am a pretty active guy. (Thank you anxiety!!!) I bike about 4 miles a day, and jog about 1, of which I have had little to no problems with leg/joint pain while I was on the Citalopram.
However, and now what I have been leading up to. Now that I am off, almost as soon as I was completely done, I started having bad knee pain, foot pain, like overall leg pain. I played basketball after like 15 years of not playing, on Mondays over a 3 week period right around the time I quit the Cit, and I just brushed it off as, well, this is what it feels like around 40. But it never felt like I healed completely after a while. My knees especially. I can barely squat. They hurt and feel swollen. I feel like I am 65, not 39!!! Anyone have any of these issues during withdrawal???
