I have been told to come off citalopram, doctors advice due to chemical imbalance, can I do anything to help ease withdrawal symptoms?
Taper very slowly!: If you have been on Celexa 40mg for 5 years at 60 year old, i would treat your body like a delicate piece of china & go very gently with a taper off medication.

If you are drinking sugared pepsi, there is also the sugar issue to deal with, so use of diet drinks temporarily may help. If 8 drinks/day, go down 2 drinks every 3-4 days. ...Read more
