I'm coming off of Lexapro, which is essentially the same as Celexa - they are mirror drugs of each other, except that the dosage for Celexa is double that of Lexapro for the same effects.
I went from 10mg to 5mg in late January (would be equivalent to going from 20mg to 10mg of Celexa). I really didn't notice any negative side effects. In fact, I felt a lot better!
BUT then I just went from 5mg to 2.5mg - 1/4 of a tablet - which is basically nothing - on Sunday. I have been extremely irritable and have lacked a great deal of my usual patience. I also have had strong heachaches, which I never have. I'm planning on not taking any tonight. I fI am noticing some unpleasant withdrawal symptoms anyway, then I might as well get it out of my system. I am upping my therapy, alternative techniques this week to balance it out.
Like you, I'm not having any strong panic/anxiety attacks, so I'm attributing these symptoms to withdrawal. I would give it a bit longer and see how you are faring - but don't let yourself be miserable!
Hard to believe that I'm down to just .25 to .5mg of klonopin a day! No hurry to completely get off that one...I've been off of SSRI's several times (for pregnancies and a few other times), so I know that I can do it. The benzo is another story - I'm not confident in my alt. techniques enough to attempt that one for awhile :)
Let us know how you are doing!
