I've never posted on one of these sites before but I'm always coming across old discussions and wishing I'd been involved. So I've been taking citalopram 20mg for 12 months now and decided to wean off it 2 months ago. I've cut the dose down gradually and 2 days of no pills feel ok so far. I never intended for meds to be a long term thing and I've taken up yoga and Buddhist meditation which I think have helped a lot. I've noticed over the past 6 months in particular I've been soooooo tired and my sex drive has all but disappeared l, has anyone else found this? Also I've always been super skinny, to the point I train to gain muscle and hate being told I'm skinny or have lost weight but the last few months my weight has crept up. I've put on about a stone since Christmas I generally eat well and I run, swim and do cross fit, I'm by no means inactive. Has anyone else found they've gained weight without any increase in apatite?
Also thoughts about dropping from 10mg to nothing? My GP is fantastic but is on hol just now, I spoke to him about reducing but then I've just missed 2 days accidently and thought I'd just carry on and see how I go. I know after a month or so on citalopram I knew if I was a few hours late taking it, the last 2 days I've felt fine but I'm worried it might creep up on me!
