Citalopram Withdrawal Symptoms

Coming off Citalopram after 3 years.

I have been taking these tablets for 3 years for clinical depression which started when I lost my Son to bowel cancer. I got extremely ill and my doctor told me I would not recover without the help of anti depressants. I did recover and they did help with the depression from the grief, they sort of numb your mind so things don’t seem quite so bad.

Coming off this anti depressant has been so hard and the withdrawal symptoms I am experiencing are:

  • insomnia
  • loss of appetite
  • dizziness
  • short tempered
  • electric shock sensations in my head
  • nightmares
  • extreme tiredness
  • feeling drunk and spaced out

I am now in my third week and wonder how much longer these symptoms are going to last.
