Crissy: Citalopram 10mg 3 weeks in for anxiety


Recommended Posts

I have gone nuts on this drug. I went to the hospital twice thinking i was going crazy. My doc kept trying to throw more meds at me. Cymbalta and effexor which i didnt take.i havent been able to eat and have lost 21 lbs in 3 weeks. I gag all day. Im now depressed and having thoughts that I'm psycho. I only took .5mg the last 2 days. I have no energy cant sleep, dont want to do anything but lay in bed and obsess over what I'm feeling. Can i just STOP the meds??

Welcome, Crissy.
Are you taking .5mg citalopram? How long were you taking it before you went off it?
This is a site for going off drugs. Many people have tried to quit and gotten withdrawal syndrome. It sounds like that's what happened to you.
Please read

Did taking .5mg citalopram reduce the withdrawal symptoms at all?
