I am struggling so much, I have been on citalopram for almost 7 and a half years and I am having such a hard time coming off of it, it’s a lose lose for me right now. I have been on 40mg for four years now and I have decided I don’t wanna take it anymore because it doesn’t really effect me. I stopped taking it frequently to the point that when I started getting the symptoms of withdrawal I would take it and then I would get the initial symptoms of starting the medication (nausea, blah feeling). Now I am trying to come off of it but after about a week I start feeling awful, nauseous, dizzy, spasms where I lose my vision for a brief moment, I just don’t know what to do anymore I am not happy with where I am right now. I have been in and out of the hospital because of the issue and I just don’t know - has anyone experienced withdrawing in a similar fashion to my situation and if so how long did it last and what did you do to fight the symptoms?
