I have been changing medications from Venlafaxine (75mg twice a day) which I’ve been on for 3 years, to Citalopram 20mg. My doctor advised me to take both at full dose for the first 4 days, then only my morning dose for the following 3. Today is the first day on just Citalopram. I am getting side effects that for so long I thought were part of my anxiety and depression. The “brain zaps” & dizziness, distraction, lack of focus. But I only got them at certain times of day, and they’d go away with my next dose, now I’m realising they were withdrawal I’m wondering whether maybe other aspects of what I thought were symptoms were my medication.
Either way despite the crazy dreams, loss of appetite, brain zaps and dizziness aside I think I’m on a good path. Does anyone have some tips or suggestions? Words of support? Reading other posts is one of the few things stopping me from feeling I’m going crazy!
