Going cold turkey from seroxat

Hi

iv been on seroxat for 13years for depression , I was on 20mg then I hit 50 years old last year and the menapause made me very low , so my GP upped my dose to 30mg. This was a year ago and Iv now gone cold turkey for 4 weeks. The reason I stopped them was I wanted to stop smoking and after trying everything and nothing working I wanted champix to help me stop. My Gp wouldn't let me go on champex due to being on such a high dose of seroxat. So I just came off my seroxat and the only withdrawal effects Iv had are awful sweating, tearful at times and moody. I'm hoping withdrawal will get better soon. I'm determined not to go back on seroxat , but wouldn't recommend going cold turkey
