  1. hi i have been on 25mg citalopram / celexa for just over a year now down from 30mg. i take a 20mg tablet and half a 10mg tablet which i split with a pill cutter. my withdrawal symptoms are much better now than they were a few months ago, however they are still there. mainly tremour and agitation now on and off. I do wonder whether the fact that i am taking a slightly different dose each day (due to inacurracies when cutting the tablets) has any bearing on this ? With this in mind I am considering asking my doctor if I can transfer to liquid to allow precise dosing. I don't know whether I would need to take my full dose as liquid ? or whether i could take a 20mg tablet and the 5mg as liquid. does anyone know if you can take both together. the other thing I am unsure of is that it is suggested on the internet that with the liquid you take a slightly reduced dose i.e 16mg as apose 20mg as it is supposedly more readily absorbed by the body thus the same effect is achieved. Does anyone have any experience of this ? Another reason I would favour taking liquid is that when I decide to reduce again I can cut accurately by much smaller amounts. any advice is much appreciated.
  2. Hi! I'm new here. I have a question regarding Abilify tablets. I just had to switch from liquid Abilify to the tablets because the liquid Abilify isn't being made anymore. I was wondering if I can either let the tablets (I take 3 mg, so 1 and 1/2 tablets) dissolve in my mouth than swallow a glass of water or let the pills dissolve in the small amount of water and then drink the water? Will this affect the effectiveness of the tablets? My pharmacy told me not to chew the tablets because the pharmacist said that parts could get stuck in your teeth, you wouldn't always get the same dose, etc. I don't like to swallow pills, even small ones, as it gives me major anxiety. Comments? Ideas? Answers? Thanks!
