You'll need to discuss it with your GP and come up with a plan.

The slower the better to avoid withdrawal sideeffects .

this is how it is working for me, at first i was on 4omg of citalopram a day, i was on them for about a year, then i went to 20mg a day for about 6 months, now im on a 20mg tablet every other day and that is going to last a month and then every second day for a month and then off altogether, i've had now withdrawel effects from coming off the meds!

You're right, it is such a great turning point when you get to come off them,
Wishing you all the luck in the world. H xxx

I never even thought to follow a withdrawal plan when I came off Prozac! I was lucky and only felt worse for 2 weeks then no better ot no worse, but this is not recommended and you do need to do it gradually.
