    coming off accidentally

    Hi everyone
    Im new here and im looking for advise as my GP is a bit rubbish

    I have been taking seroxat for over 2 years
    I am rubbish at taking pills and forget a lot of the time. Sometimes I go for the best part of a week without taking one and then withdrawal symptoms start kicking in and remind me.

    Anyway, I had a tonsillectomy (tonsils removed op) on the 23rd July and I havent had a pill since then.

    I Would very much like to come off them and I went through some side affects last week. Im not feeling the withdrawal this week.

    Has anyone come off seroxat cold turkey? If so, how long do the withdrawal symptoms you have had last for?

    But it's a big positive that you can come off them so easily for when you need to again as cold turkey is very likely to mean bad side effects and this is one of the worst 2 meds to come off according to the professionals.

    It just means that the anxiety was not resolved but once you get stable you can work on this through therapy and work towards coming off again when you feel more recovered. Good luck.
