Hi, Mormont.


Welcome to Surviving Antidepressants. 


Are you still taking Citalopram? If not, when did you stop? 


Please let us know more about your drug use. Is Citalopram the only psychiatric drug you've taken? If not, please let us know more about your psychiatric drug history (names of drugs, doses, and dates you were on them).

When did you start taking Citalopram? At what dose? When did you stop? 


We really need the answers to these questions in order to help you. The amount of the reinstatement is determined by the dose you were on prior to reinstatement and how long ago you stopped. Please see:

We don't recommend adding new psychiatric drugs to treat withdrawal symptoms. The goal is to reinstate the right amount of Citalopram to help minimize withdrawal symptoms, such as insomnia.

started in 2011. 10,20,30 then i had 10 mg for 2 years. I canceled the CT on 9/2020 and started taking a small amount of 1 mg due to WD symptoms. I've had a quick rejuvenation and that ends up in total chaos on 6/2021.


I cant work or Go Out of the House.
