Hi Carmie,

good to hear from you.  I am still doing well.  I plan to continue to hold yet for a while and will start a slow taper when i am up for it.

How have you been?

Good to hear, Hazel.

 

Looking back, how would you summarize your experience in switching from paroxetine to citalopram? How long did it take your nervous system to settle down at every step?

I would say it wasn’t too bad overall.  The first few weeks were tough, but around a month in I knew I made the right decision as I was noticing quite a bit of improvement.

It took about a month each time to settle on an increased dose.  I worked my way up slowly to 10mg to begin with and held for about 1 month or so, then gradually increased to 15mg.  I held there for about 4 months and was still having some ups and downs, so gradually increased to 20 mg by the middle of March where I have continued to hold.

I am feeling good right now and plan to continue to hold until at least the first of the year.  If I am still feeling good I will likely start a slow taper off.

Hi Carmie!

I have been doing well.  I feel like I am very close to being stable on the citalopram. I am back to living my “normal” life again and that feels amazing.

Hope all is well with you and thanks for checking in😊
