Great to hear Kmrekl... sounds like you have got onto an even plateau with it all. Hope this can be maintained for you and that you have some relief from previous symptoms.

It'll be an adjustment whenever I go down in dosage again, but for the moment I'm staying where I am and building coping skills and working through trauma.

 

Hope that you're doing okay!

That's a wise move. Get some confidence in reserve before considering another move. It will serve you well.

 

I am doing exactly the same. I have had some really good days recently, which I am sure has something to do with the homeopathy I am taking, but am also getting some confidence back before I consider dropping my Citalopram. It will happen, but not yet. I want to enjoy more of these good days while I can!!

Been a while since I checked in. Still at 12 mg and no withdrawal symptoms because I guess my body is really used to the lower dose now. I didn't think this would be such a long process ( I thought max a year), but it's been almost a year and I am not off Effexor yet or even that close. (For anyone wondering, I was on Cymbalta for over a decade, and to taper my doctor put me on Effexor, which is quite similar.)

 

It's an added expense to do the compounded medication (with shipping $69/month), but it's so worth it. Still $828 a year is a lot, and it's hard not to want to rush this process so I can quit spending so much money. Insurance does not reimburse. Anyway, I just can't think about the money. This is what's best for my health. Slow slow slow.
