My doc gave me the go-ahead to taper off the Celexa a few days ago. My last dose of 10mg was on Sunday morning. On Sunday afternoon and Monday I felt strange, had increased anxiety, sweating, stomach ache and some mood swings. Yesterday I felt almost normal, and today I'm feeling like myself again. The panic seems to be gone for now (and hopefully for a long time). I've started taking liquid mineral supplements this morning which had an almost immediate calming effect. I asked the doc how I could have gotten an magnesium deficiency, she said that it could have been the combination of almost constant diarrhea from my Ulcerative Colitis and the vigorous physical exercise of the half-marathon training. She and I are going to get together next week to evaluate how things are going with the mineral supplements. I really hope that's all that is going on...I'd prefer not to be on meds if I don't have to, but would choose them any day over anxiety attacks. I'll keep y'all posted.
