Posting again for reassurance


Recommended Posts



I think you can see my story in my signature anyway I Am 6 months from a fast taper starting 3rd August came off citlopram after 18 years completely on 31st October and started sertraline on 5th November now 13 weeks on 100mg and still suffering withdrawals from citlopram and getting new symptoms 

tingling in head and like someone pushing down 

elastic band back 

tingling in whole face 

feel like whole body vibrating 
feel like walking on clouds 


my psych wants to up my dose as apparently I should feel better now I’m sertraline (I intend to come off them )


I don’t know whether to do this as I font want side effects plus withdrawals ... I feel like going to be stuck like this I just need reassurance again through this bad time


i am trying to ignore the symptoms but they are getting me down now ... This is exhausting and I have a full time job and 2 young children
