Hi I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this same experience when coming off Citalopram . I took 10mg for 16 days (for stress and anxiety) and had terrible side effects - begged my doctor to say I could stop it which he has. I have had quite bad withdrawal - mostly dizziness , feeling off balance and odd sensation at the back of my head. Also get odd thoughts at times which make me more anxious. Signed off work at the moment and really need to sort myself out as only getting sickness benefit. Can anyone advise. I have been stopped the tablets now for 10 days.
