    Hi Pavol, 

    You should probably stay on it. 2 months is a very short time. But if you do have to go off it, people recommend lowering the dose over a period of time. 

    I haven't gone off it yet, so can't really advise. But I know there have been discussions on it previously that you may be able to find.

    I suggest asking your doctor, people on here are not experts and have different experiences, you must be very carefull coming off them and your doctor will work with you as to the best plan :-) good luck, they did. to agree with me.... But I just stopped as only managed a week!

    I agree with the advice of talking to your GP. I cold turkey on citalopram after 2 months and it was awful. As I say ask your GP.
