I have been on 20mg citalopram now for about 7 or 8 months, I am trying to come off them as I don't believe I need them anymore so to start with I am reducing my dose to 10mg daily for the first month, next month I will try 10mg on alternate days and go from there, I tried to just stop but I couldn't cope with the side effects so have decided the gradual withdrawal will be best. Since I have been on them though I have gained almost 2 stone, I am at slimming world but my weight loss is dreadful - 3 weeks & only 2 1/2 pounds off. When I spoke to my GP about how bad I was feeling (I am incredibly tired, ache foggy etc) he just blamed it all on my weight & when I queried if this could be because of the citalopram he was adamant it wasn't!! I totally disagree (I actually queried if I had CFS or Fibromyalgia but they won't do anything because of my weight) - has anyone else had this experience? If you had once you have reduced the dose have you found the weight has started coming off easier?
