Hi I'm 43. And I tried to come down off of 40 mg of citalopram on my own 4 months ago. Came off to fast and left me in a bad mess. My psychologist upped me to 60mg to stabilize and then to bring me down gradually. I was initially taking a generic brand from a clinic by my home town(40mg) and she prescribed me some 20mg of a different manufacture by (dr. Reddy)and like a dumb butt I used the two together to make the 60mg. I ran out of the 20mg of dr. Reddys and supplemented the other by epic pharma to continue the 60mg. The next evening I experienced light headedness and anxiety. I've quit taking the one by epic pharma and switched to using the one by dr. Reddy. After seeing posts that said you could in fact experience a set back from switching manufacturer brands. That was teo days ago and not feeling the anxiety but empathy and depressed. My question is, is how long before this evens out? I know 60 mg is not used anymore. But this was for a short duration to stabilize and bring me back down. Need some input hopefully positive please
