    I've definitely had headaches along the way, when I started, when I changed brand and definitely when I reduced dose over the past week.

    I know this isn't exactly your scenario as you've been on the same dose all this time but I wanted to reassure you that it's very likely to be the medication.

    How are you doing apart from the headaches? I'm weaning off them after 6 months of trying two different AD with no improvement and actually feeling worse than before I started. Like Charlie I've had headaches all the time on them as well if you are really concerned maybe give your doctors a ring for advice most seem to be doing phone consultations at moment.

      Got to be a personal decision, depends if they are helping you,I'm only coming off them because they haven't helped me at all and increased symptoms and actually made me feel worse so figure 6 months long enough. . Others should be able to advise you how long you should stay on them before thinking of coming off them. I would have put up with side efffects if they'd helped hopefully someone with more experience will respond! Some people stay on them long term but at end of the day got to be your decision.
