I started taking Citalopram 10mgs for only 4 weeks and experienced bad side effects like internal shaking, etc. that never went away after the 4 weeks.
My GP adviced me to just stop taking the Citalopram cold turkey and there shouldn't be any withdrawal side effects. I continued on just 5mgs for the next three days and then completely stopped.
I have not taken any Citalopram now for 1 week. I have been experiencing nausea, very jittery (my whole body will shake), tingling sensation in my brain, feeling breathless, and cannot concentrate.
I have been taking an occasional Ativan that the doctor prescribed for the shakiness. (Have only taken 2 Ativan in the past week .50 mg, since being completely off the Citalopram.
I have experienced days where I feel better then other days in the past week, but symptoms are worst in morning and at night.
My doctor also gave me Zofran for nausea which doesn't seem to be helping.
My question is, could this be withdrawal symptoms from stopping the Citalopram even though I was only on 10mgs for 4 weeks? If so, when do you think these side effects will subside? Any help would be appreciated!
