'm on day 5 of no celexa (forgot a couple of days and decided to just keep going) which I've been taking in low doses (10 - 20 mg) for 8 years. So far I've experienced some mild withdrawal symptoms such as dizziness, sleeplessness, bad dreams and a bit of nausea. But on the positive side, I feel much less dependent upon alcohol, which I drank a lot of while taking celexa. My question is: if my withdrawal symptoms are mild, am I ok to continue to not take it, or should I go back to a low dose, perhaps every other day, and gradually reduce that? It just seems to me that the symptoms are possible regardless of whether you quit cold turkey or wean yourself off. And if I can handle the symptoms without putting my health at risk, I'd rather not restart. I really like the fact that I'm not craving alcohol the way I did when I was taking it, but I don't want to risk any major side effects.
