has anyone had withdrawal symptoms return after not having any for weeks? I had been on celexa for 18 years for severe anxiaty about health concerns.  the last year or so did not find the drug was helping and decieded  to go off and maybe try something new. I had all the  usual withdrawal symptoms at every taper decrease but after 4-5 months finally was feeling well for 2-4 weeks . like my old self from long ago. this past 3 days i have been crying constantly. fears of being sick and overwhelming andb I feel hopless and helpless. Is this a normal expeiriance with the withdrawal? too have setbacks or repeated symptoms

    hi,

    I was on citalopram for 10 years.

    I gradually stopped it very slowly within 3 years ,without any withdrawl symptoms.

    Then ,I was o.k for 4 years ,and sudenly I experienced withdrawl symptoms for 2 months

    I was carefull enough not to restart the drug ,and then they stopped.

    I am now feeling fine again! !
