After being on citalopram since September 2015 and them no longer doing anything for me except exhaust me myself and my GP have began tapering me off them.
I started in 2015 on 20mg and worked up to 40mg, as of yesterday my GP has put me down to 20mg again (for 2 weeks) then I have a pack of 10mg to take every day for 2 weeks then after that 2 weeks I need to take 10mg every other day until I finish the pack and that’s it!
To me in the back of my head I’m worried that’s to quick after such a long time and high dosage. I don’t know whether it’s me or whether the withdrawals are happening straight away because I’ve felt so lightheaded and dizzy today and just not with it.
Has anyone any experience of tapering off a 40mg dose? I don’t know whether to follow the GPS tapering advice or adjust it slower?
