Re: how do i wean off my antidepresants
It took me several weeks to wean off from citalopram (after a year). I was on 20 mg and, initially, because its half life is 35 hours I decided to take a tablet every 2 days. Two weeks later I started feeling worse and thought it was time to see a doctor (surely I should've done it before). I was politely told that it was a wrong thing to do so my way was:
10 days - one day 20mg / one day 10mg
2 weeks - 10mg daily
10 days - one day 10mg / one day 5mg
1 week - 5mg daily
few days - one day 5mg / one day nothing
This went really well.
Hope this helps.
