Hi all. I'm new on here, just thought I'd see if anyone has any support to help me out
I suffered severe panic attacks and anxiety since I was a kid, I was on citalophram for 5 years and recently changed to venlfaxine- on 225mg for the last year. I decided I wanted to come off it as I didn't feel it was doing anything to help, and I was getting so many head zaps all the time.
I've been given a withdraw plan from my doctor to taper off over the next 10 weeks and to gradually start a new medication- Duloxetine (my doc thinks this would be better suited to me). I'm one week in now, down 37.5 to 187.5mg. I've got another week before two weeks of 150 then 150 WITH Duloxetine etc until they are switched over.
I'm currently not feeling a huge amount different as I've only reduced the first small amount, still just getting the head zaps, often low mood and ALWAYS tired. I just wondered as I'm sure this will be a tough journey, if anyone could tell me what the withdraw process is really like at this rate of decrease (37.5)
and also does anyone know anything about Duloxetine? I really hope this will be a smooth transaction and that the Duloxetine will be all worth it!
Thanks in advance everyone, and blessings to all. X
