UK members who are tapering citalopram (Cipramil or Celexa) -- how are you tapering the drug? Does anyone use the prescription liquid?

 

If you are using the prescription liquid, what is your technique for taking it? Equipment, how you dilute it, how you measure it, how you store it, etc. 

 

Please alert your mates in the UK to this question. Thank you.
