This one states 45%!!

 

http://www.ncbi.nlm....ith agoraphobia.

 

I just found an article which studied the long lasting effect of ssri withdrawal symptoms. They noted that some of the psychological effects from the withdrawal lasted up to a year. Based on this research the WIki site states that "Most cases of discontinuation syndrome last between one and four weeks, but a substantial minority, perhaps up to 15% of users, have persistant withdrawal symptoms evident one year post withdrawal." UP TO A YEAR? FOR REAL? 15% is a lot of people

And, based on what you learned recently from your psychologist, FH, am I correct that those of us who are older (than dirt? Hehehe) are more likely to have longer and/or more difficult withdrawals?
