Hi Gang,
While doing research for SSRI withdrawal I found this site. I am currently trying to get off of Celexa. I have been on 20mg daily for amost 3 years. It has been a God-send for me. My physician suggested that I try going off of it. In the past the withdrawal was so bad that I went back on it. What I have done so far is to reduce to 10mg daily for 2 weeks, and then three days ago stopped. Well, I was so dizzy and shakey that I was afraid to drive. I spilled hot coffee on myself. I didn't feel depressed which is a good sign. I ended up taking 10mg of Celexa and within a couple of hours felt fine. My plan is to start taking 10mg every other day for a couple of weeks and then stop again. I am not feeling very optimistic after reading what everyone has gone through. I am wondering if those who have been successful just decided to ride out the withdrawal symptoms. If so, any experience of how long they will last with Celexa?

Thanks much!
