The medical literature is misleading regarding the duration of withdrawal syndrome.

Do antidepressants cause dependence?
Haddad PM.
 

 

In most patients discontinuation symptoms are mild and short lived. However symptoms can cause significant morbidity, they may be misdiagnosed leading to inappropriate treatment, they may adversely effect future antidepressant compliance and they may prevent some patients stopping antidepressant treatment. In the context of this paper, a key question is whether this last effect indicates that antidepressants cause addiction/dependence....

doref,

 

Im not on any ADs, but if you are and want to withdraw from them, then I think you should just give it a go and see for yourself how long it does take you to get off of them. Then you wont have to ask the question or read anything unless you want to.

 

Its most likely an individual experience. Maybe it will be hard and maybe it wont. Try it and see if you wish to know. Youll have your own personal experience which is very important when asking a question like this.

On Xanax 10 years for anxiety, 2 mgs, night only. Attempted my own taper w/o understanding the dependency issues.

 

Researched and then understood the need for longer half life med. Doctor crossed me from X to klonopin 4 times in 6 months. Last time on X, she up dosed me to 3 mgs X.

 

On last cross attempt, ended up in ER with profound w/d sx from X. Got new doctor. Final cross to K, structured, slow was completed 6/5/12-12/5/12.

 

Attempting liquid micro taper from K. Difficulty with micro cuts; significant w/d sx requiring several weeks of holding after each cut. Also concerned if it's possible to use pill/liquid combo for dosing.

 

Hope I Meet Other Benzo Taperers Here! I have tried ADs in past. Could not tolerate them, gave up trying, none for over 12 years.

I never thought quitting anti depressants would be this hard. I guess it goes to show the addictive and dependent nature of this medication.

Began taking 50 mg of Zoloft for 6 months before tapering down to 25 mg for 3 months. Changed to 50 mg of Pristiq for 3 months, after 3 months was was put onto 50 mg of Clomipramine before gradually progressing to 200 mg as well as being instructed to cut the Pristiq in half and take it with the Clomipramine.
