I hope some of you may be able to offer some advice. I've been on citalopram for ten years, apparently depression runs in my family and for approx five years have always been on a maintenance dosage. Any time I have tried to come off in the past I can barely function and have even walked out of jobs due to the anxiety that I have felt. For the past two years due to a bad divorce my doctor upped my dosage to 40mgs. After amazing counselling, I am now in a stable relationship and job and thinking about trying to have a baby. I would like to attempt to come off the drug but always found it too frightening before...the fear of having to go throught the side effects again if I needed to go back on citalopram always stop me coming off it.
Sorry for the long winded message but I just wanted to know any advice about coming off this as the thought of it frightens me to death. The last thing I want is to come off it and ruin everything I currently have due to anxiety.
Hope you can help x
