well been to see the doc and the plan is half dose 10mg for 2 mths. If okay then that dose but every other day for another period of time.. going to be a long job this!

I think you should definitely discuss this with your GP. I stupidly stopped taking my 20mg citalopram and within a fortnight was deeply depressed.

Have a frank discussion with the doc and see what they say. Are you receiving any talking therapy?

I have been on the above, 20mg for a long time. Not entirely sure how long but, a long time.
However I really want to come off them. I know full well they have become in a sense a bit of a comfort blanket but going forward I don't want to be on them forever and would love to see if I can cope without or even if that's a bit ambitious cut down on the dose to say 10mg
I have accordingly made a GP appt to discuss this but hope I'm doing the right thing - doubts creeping in! Anyone else done this with good effect?
