Coming off Cit

Posted , 5 users are following.

Seen my dr, we both agreed I might not need Cit. Going to cut down to 10mg over the holidays and come off it in the new year. I have learned quite a bit being on this medication, but most of all, I didn't work on myself enough which is what I am trying to do now. Either way, all the best to all of you and have an amazing Christmas and new year!!

    Good afternoon. Was on Citalapram 20mg for about 7 years.

    Tried coming off a couple of times as the causes were no longer

    relevant. Told my wife and daughter and of course their evil eyes

    looked for changes so I restarted.

    This time I told no one, apart from GP, and it was easy. 10mg

    for a month then 5 for a fortnight.

    Point was I was not depressed and had to declare for travel

    insurance. So no problems at all for me, hope hours can be as easy.

    But don't advertise it or others, you monitor yourself.

    Hi All

    I started 10mg/day of Cit 2 weeks ago, but had to stop it after just 6 days because it made me too ill, and kicked of a big fibromyalgia flare up. It is now 3 days after stopping, and I feel dreadful. Does anyone have any idea how long these withdrawal symptoms will last - having only taken 6 days of the drug?

    Thanks for any advice.
