Thank you for sharing your story. I have tears of recognition in my eyes. I could not tolerate the full 20mg dose of citalopram so used just 5mg for several years after a devastating break up of a relationship. That worked, despite doctors claiming it was less than therapeutic dose. After a while, it didn't work, and I tried a range of others. Desvenlafaxine full dose for a year. But I wanted to stop. I was addicted, and it took all my will power to come off. Tried some others. Then anxiety and the symptoms you describe hit. I'm now off everything, but it feels like I have permanent brain damage. And I can't sleep properly. I realise now I made a lot of stupid decisions on these ssri's and I can't recover the lost time and lost loves. We must find a better way to deal with this!
