    I have been on citalopram since 2004 after a traumatic event. My dose has changed, mostly because I have reduced it on my own. I was down to 5 mg/day a few years ago then stopped cold turkey.

Well, now due to life I have been back on 20 ng/day for about a year. I have tried to taper by reducing my dose I day a week to 10 mg. I have since learned that can trigger withdrawal and it did trigger intense bouts of nausea and loose stools. Last I tried to reduce by 25%
  4. Hi, everybody! I started citalopram (Celexa) when I was 18 years old to treat generalized anxiety. The doctor assured that it doesn't cause dependency... well, now I know it does! I've used citalopram for 10 years (40mg). I tried to quit citalopram following doctors advices (each drop -5mg), and reached zero 8/2014. Immediatly came the normal wd symptoms (with I experience after missing a dose), dizzines, zaps in the head, mild dysrhytmia.After a week, I started to experience devastating wd symptoms: sleep disturbances, akathisia, stomach problems, mood swings, muscle spams, itching, anxi
