> Whenever I discontinued Celexa, I had a 2-3 spell of elation and euphoria, increased sex drive, energy, motivation, etc. And then it all came crashing down as the withdrawl symptoms begin to set in.
When i quit Paxil i felt the same sort of things. First, an intense return of emotions (which was kind of nice) for about a couple weeks, followed by the horrifying doom and deep dark despair of withdrawal. Interesting how others felt this as well. So but yeah, anyway, the somewhat pleasant return of emotions does, i'm sorry to say, go away... fading into a worse depression. So my advice is to not quit cold turkey-- taper, really taper. Of course if youre curious you can see for yourself.
