I wrote 24 days ago about switching from citalopram to sertraline. I've been taking 40mg of the citalopram and now have a script for 50mg of the sertraline. I tried tapering down the citalopram by skipping the dose every other day. That must be too quick because I had the worst week in years, depression and personality changes.
I figure if I want to taper the citalopram, I will have to go so much slower in the tapering that it will be too long of a time not feeling well.
My question is, has anyone tried to switch by alternating the citalopram and sertraline every other day? I guess I could go ahead and just try it but if someone has experience doing this I would sure like to hear from you.
Since they are both a type of SSRI it should be safe, just wonder if it will work or if I am setting myself up for another bad time.
