severe celexa withdrawal

Posted by michelle67 on August 30, 2012, at 2:03:31

Hi, I'm hoping for some advice and support please. I took celexa for about nine years, most recently at 60mg daily. My psychiatrist recommended coming off it to try a new drug. she told me to reduce it over ten days and I did so. It's a week since the last dose and since then I find it hard to walk and have spent every day in bed. I am completely unbalanced and feel extremely nauseous and giddy when I try to walk, and so can only creep very, very slowly with my feet close together. My doc told me to go back on Celexa three days ago and I have had one dose of 20mg and two of 30mg since then. But I'm no better, I can't function or look after my kids. I've been to the GP to rule out other causes, and my psych says my reaction is 'excessive' but that it should improve. BUt when? I'm so scared that it's not going to get better. When I sit in bed I'm fine - I can work (I'm a writer) and feel almost normal, but as soon as I start to try to walk the sense of imbalance hits again. I don't know what to do. Can someone please help?
