Hello. I have been on Citalopram 20mg for the past 12 months. My doctor feels that it's time that I get off of it.
He suggested taking one 20mg pill every other day for 3 weeks. At that point, he wants me to go two days in between taking a 20 mg pill.
After 3 weeks of that regiment, he wants me to go 3 days between a 20 mg pill.
I have just finished my 3 week regiment of 1 pill every other day.
I must say that I feel "strange" since I've started the taper. I've been experiencing things such as heart palpitations, body shakes, strange feeling in head (kind of a dizzy feeling, but not overly severe), mild to moderate agitation, etc.
My questions are:
1) Is my doctor having me taper the correct way?
2) Are these "strange" things that I am going through physically due to the taper or are these things that I am experiencing not normal during a taper?
Thanks in advance!
