Winning up Citapolram 2mg for six months and refuced for the last week to 10mg

Posted , 4 users are following.

Since I reduced to 10mg I am fighting with withdrawal symbtoms, for the last three days feeling my mind is like blank can't concentrate sufficiently as I am student for my final degree in psychology and my last exam is 2 days time. I don't what to do anything feeling tired even after I gave myself for sometime to recover almost one week didn't do anything. I have even tried a different techniques for my concentrations and I feel like giving up!! Apart of me telling me no I should force myself because it's only one exam but, I can't think and feeling extremely tired and sleepy, please any advice would be helpful.

Thank you

    hi safiya. it's not a good move to start reducing ur meds during exam times. wait until the exams are all over & less stressed. then do a gradual reduction when u feel ur upto doing that. u could start by taking one 10 mgs tab and half the other for a few days/weeks and see how ur body responds. when ur ok on the 15 mgs think of lowering it further to 10 mgs and then 5 mgs. u could do the alternate day reduction approach also. its important to do this with the collobaration/supervision of ur GP or Uni Doc. it needs to be supervised.

    meantime, all good luck with the exams.

    Caitlin has pretty much nailed it with her reply. I would go back to your doctor and rediscuss this with them.
