Tali Change medicines


Recommended Posts

Hey I’m changing from duloxetine to citalopram. Is it possible to replace between them on the same day? Or it’s better to lower first the duloxetine and than to add the citalopram by one month? What’s your advice?

Welcome, @Tali


This is a site for going off drugs. We do not advise on doctor-supervised drug switches for the purpose of staying on the drug -- that's what they get paid for. If your doctor doesn't know how to do this, you need a new doctor.


Please let us know if you want to go off your drugs.

This is not medical advice. Discuss any decisions about your medical care with a knowledgeable medical practitioner.

I suggest that you do your own research.  The term for changing from one drug to another is called a cross taper or bridge or switch.


I did a search using all the following words and found some things:  switch bridge cross taper
