Thread: Going to miss 2 doses for 2 days...what happens if i do this?

    Going to miss 2 doses for 2 days...what happens if i do this?

    I've run out of citalopram!

    I thought i had a repeat prescription but i must have misplaced it as i can't find it!

    I cant go to the doctors today and get a repeat prescription as it's the weekend and they re-open on monday, so i'm going to miss at least 2 days worth of 20mg doses...is this ok?

    Has anyone gone cold turkey for a few days? How did you feel?

    Pill

    Do you have a emergency GP surgery that opens on a weekend in your area? I once forgot my prescription and i contacted a out of hours surgery which got one ready for me to pick up. Missing your dose might make you feel a bit rotten(heightened anxiety) what strength do you take?

    I agree with Andrea.

    I called the out-of-hours doc a month ago as I needed some pain-killers and had run out and they gave me 10 to last the weekend.

    Call them - I would NOT leave it 2 days without them.

    Tanya

    Please don't be sorry at all. If you were fine that is great but I have known people stop for 2 days and be really poorly so I am offering my side of things as well.

    Of course you should post your experience and you know how you were and were saying that you were ok.

    Don't feel bad ok?
