Hi all, I've been on Citalopram 20mg for about 9 months and decided due to other health issues to come off. I felt better and never really felt I needed it in the first place, it was more to show willing to the doctor. Anyway I went to the docs to tell them I wanted off so they gave me a reduced dose of 10mg. I halved my dose for a few weeks and then last Friday I went out and totally forgot to take my Citalopram so just decided it was a good time to stop altogether. I felt fine up until Thursday this week and I felt a bit heavy headed with dizzy spells, since then the dizzy spells have become worse and tonight the tears have started. I feel like my mood has just got terrible since coming off them. My question is how long will these withdrawal affects last? I feel awful! Thanks x
