14 years on Celexa : (citalopram) because of a misdiagnosis. Bunch of symptoms that i ended up with over the years : Irritable Bowel Syndrome, bad acid reflux / stomach problems, aura migraine, migraine,tinnitus,spasms, bladder leakage, sexual problems, etc. A year ago I've discovered that most the physical and psychological diagnostics mentioned before were all due to the medication. I was a shocked and took me a year of therapy to defuse my anger and rage It took me almost the same amount of time to convince one psychiatrist that i needed to withdrawal from the medication. I have seen and read a lot about withdrawals but joined this forum to get the support needed when the time comes. The psychiatrist i'm seeing says that no symptoms should appear, that everything will be ok - that he didn't see anything negative in his literature and with the hundreds of patients he got into withdrawals over the years. He wants me to taper going from 20 mg to 15 , 10, 5 in 3-4 months . I said i would prefer going slowly by 10 %, he refused and said it was ridicule and i wouldn't even see no difference. I just hope everything will be ok.
