Quitting Citalopram Cold Turkey After 8 Weeks On It (20Mg)
Posted 11 May 2013 - 11:30 AM
This was probably a bad move. Despite all I'd read about slowly tapering off, I figured 8 weeks was a short enough period of time on such a low starter dose that I'd be totally fine just quitting altogether. I think I was wrong. Now I feel EXTREMELY depressed, really spacey, feel that my life has no meaning, anxious, almost suicidal etc etc. And I have been snapping at my friends for the smallest things, which is affecting our relationships. I have prom coming up this Saturday (7 days from now) and I'm really hoping I'm at least less depressed by then.. I feel the worst I've probably ever felt right now.
How long will the effects of Citalopram withdrawal probably last in my case since I was only on them 8 weeks?
And are there any ways to combat the withdrawal symptoms? Before the Celexa I was mid-diagnosed with ADD so I have some Adderall XR left, and I was considering whether taking these in the middle of this drug withdrawal would help ease my depression or just make me even more irritable and anxious.
Thanks for any and all replies on this matter, I really appreciate it.
