Re: Best way to come off of 10mg Citalopram?
Alternating doses is not the best way to come off these .I would suggest you cut down to 5mg ...ie Half a tab for a week and see how you are feeling .When you feel ok and have felt fine for 5days ,cut down again to nothing .It will then take time to adjust and around the 4 week mark you should be ok .It is normal to feel a bit low as you withdraw .It doesnt mean you are having a relapse .Get plenty of sleep and excecise and eat healthy food .Its also wise to drink plenty of water based drinks .The Nytol is safe to take ..Good luck .Sue x
Would like to add, it has taken me at least a month to feel ok on cutting my dose down by 5mg a time .Its got harder the lower my dose has got .Dont cut down again until you feel well .Or you may try cuttin the last 5mg in half before you go down to nothing .I know i intend to do that ..We all react differently as it affects our brain chemistry .You may find you feel ok after a few days .Post again if you need any help or support .Sue x
