'Hat has summed up the options here, and on the contrary, a lot of people choose to support the withdrawal with another SSRI. We aware of a certain group elsewhere that are right against this, and we respect this, but we are of the opinion of not causing any more suffering than need be. If it gets to this point, then we do suggest considering one of the above options. Think of it as natural childbirth if you will!! A drug-free birth is great.. sure it is, but boy can I imagine it smarts a bit!
Just in case you weren't aware;
Escitalopram = Lexapro
Celexa = Citalopram
Zoloft = Sertraline
You can also have a look at my most recent thread as I have gone from Cymbalta, to Citalopram and then to Escitalopram. I am VERY sensitive to drugs, so consider my journey a relatively nasty one. I was pushed and pulled all over the place and have gone thru hell - I use that term lightly, but it is fitting here. But things are slowly improving.
Keep us updated, Sir. Anything else you would like to ask, please do so - we are all here for you both.
