I had been on 20mgs of Citalopram for 6 months and was feeling like myself again. I decided to come off, so just took one pill every other day. After a week felt bad so went back to a pill daily for a week. To come off them I took 6 days as normal then on the 7th day had a half pill. The next day felt very tired but then was ok again. I took one half pill a week three weeks. Then I had a second half dose a week for three weeks, again felt tired the next day but by the third week felt ok the day after a half dose so introduced another half dose. I gave it three weeks each time between lessening the dose. When each day was a half dose I had one day with no pill and 6 days with the half dose and every three weeks had another day with no dose. I had three days a week with a half dose, then two, then none. It took a long time but I did not suffer at all in the way you guys have described on here. Slow and steady. Good luck to you all.
