Cold turkey is the worst way possible to do it!! You should lower it at 5mg intervals every week or two!! Talk to your dr! I've been on 60mg Citalopram daily for 2 1/2 years and because of the recent FDA announcement about the heart side effects, he decided to switch me to Lexapro 20mg. He dropped me from 60mg to 20mg overnight and after 2 days I had major withdrawal effects. I went up to 40mg yeterday and feel a little bit better. I'm also taking 20mg of lexapro with all this.... I'm frustrated! But do not cold turkey!

Some antidepressants are said to cause severe withdrawal symptoms when stopped abruptly. Moreover, these drugs, such as Paxil could cause birth defects on babies whose mothers took the medication while pregnant. These alarming news should make people more cautious when taking on any new medication.

The dosages of most antidepressants are very high at times. This makes quitting the drug really hard because of the withdrawal symptoms.The dosage of the drug affects the severity of the withdrawal symptoms of the patient.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#fbks for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/3FuqC7 only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
