Hello all, hope someone can help, I have been advised by a very helpfull, understanding moderator to put this post to this forum, I am deperate, for I need some urgent help and advise re Citalopram, I have only just joined the forum. I have a complex problem in that I have a damaged spinal cord from many years ago, which has in the last 9 years resulted in chronic pain around my lower left ribs and my stomach, I was prescribed Cytalopram 20 mgs over a year ago as well as Pregabalin 150mgs 4 times a day, allthough they are anti depressants they are also supposed to releive nerve damage pain, 3 months ago with my G.P.'s o.k. I statrted weaning myself off them both, I was down to 50mg's of P.G. and down to 5 of Citalopram and felt no different painwise, so there was no point in taking pills that had no effect, however when I stopped alltogether I got very sick, night sweats, stresseed, bad sleeping, dizzy and most troubling a constant hissing noise in my ears, it has turned out that this could be tinnitus brought on by the stress of not seeing an end in sight to the relentless pain which can only be tamed by Sevredol (Morphine Sulphate) which I only take when really bad about twice a week, as it is addictive, have you any advice at all how I can come off Citalopram? also how long will the withdrawl symptoms last? and finally is there any drug apart from Cyclizine (Anti sickness drug) that could make the coming off easier? I am sorry to be so long and boring, but I would appreciate it if anyone would have a think for me as you all know where I am coming from.
Thank you for being so patient with me.
Kindest regards M.
