I've been on citalopram 20mg for 4 months and feeling fine now. when is a good time to start tapering off, and evaluate if the meds are still needed?

Talk to doctor: Discuss with prescribing provider if this is the right time to taper and stop citalopram. Four months on citalopram is not a long time, but everyone is different. Good luck.
