> Sleep paralysis and vivid dreams are withdrawal symptoms. Fluoxetine (Prozac) has a long half life, the withdrawal symptoms can take a couple of weeks to 'kick in'. Increasing your citalopram dose should help. Do I rememeber that you were taking a high dose of fluoxetine? 40mg citalopram (Cipramil, Celexa) is not enough to substitute for a high dose of fluoxetine.

I really experience sleep paralysis while I was taking Remeron. They are really frightening..I hated them! This was the only thing I hated about Remeron. Since I've been off remeron I have not had one Paralysis dream.
Take care, Tyler
