Nadine123 Tapering citalopram


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

i started tapering about three months ago and am down to 5mgs per day for two days followed by one day free. I did this for one month to five weeks.

this week I quartered my 10mg tablet and started taking one quarter for two days followed by a day’s break. I intend to do this for four to six weeks before  reducing to just quarter tablet every second day for four to six weeks. I’m experiencing insomnia and the catatonic look and don’t know if I’m actually weaning off safely or too quickly??

please advise.

Welcome, Nadine.


I moved your post here to start your Introductions topic, where you can ask questions and update your progress.


One should never skip days to taper. If I were you, I'd take 2.5mg citalopram (1/4 tablet) every day at the same time for several months, let your nervous system settle down from the drug changes.


Please let us know how you're doing.
