Has anyone else taken the above drug since having been diagnosed? My GP prescribed it for me during my treatment 'cos I felt so down all the time. It has been a wonder drug, not an anti depressant but just sort of levelled everything out. I have recently wanted to expel all drugs from my system and so asked about coming off it. I was initially on 20mg and went down to 10mg. I had a few days where I then took one every other day but then had to stop immediatelky as I had to have an anit biotic which had conflicting effects with citalopram.
Boy - am I suffering now! I feel 'cold turkey' with symptoms of anxiaety and feeling weepy, can't sleep and have periods of 'itchiness'. From googling, these sysmptoms are apparently due to coming off the citalopram too quickly? Anyone else had this?
