Hi, been taking Citalopram for about 10 years and felt it was time to quit. I tapered down the dosage really slowly over 10/12 weeks and have been without meds now for 2 months.
Thing is... I went through loads off different and crazy feelings both mentally and physically, and now I feel like I need to go back on the meds again.
I'm angry, frustrated, anxious, snappy, very irritable and on the verge of crying over simple and silly things, just like before starting meds.
I feel this is withdrawal symptoms and would love it to all go away but I'm trying to look at the long term benefits of being free from meds and I am trying so hard not to go back to taking them again, I just want to feel some sort of normality.
Does anyone know if or when these withdrawal symptoms will ever cease, I've read it can take months and months...... not sure I can handle it.
Any input or advice?
