Welcome to the site. Withdrawing from any anti-depressant can be very tramatic. Go through the porcess slowly, listen to your doc and your body, and make sure you are doing it for the right reasons. I tried to come off of mine because I didn't want to take another medication. I have a chronic illness that requires me to take a good number of meds already. As I was coming off the anti-depressant, I noticed I was becoming more irritable, antsy, and withdrawing. Went back to the doc and admitted that I wasn't ready to come off of it and went back on it again. Good luck in your decision and hope you find the answers you are looking for.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
