Do you have any advice on tapering off Celexa?
Gradual dose reduction is advised.
Thanks for asking your query on our platform.
Celexa is Citalopram and is an SSRI drug. If used for a long time then abrupt dose change could lead to withdrawal. This is the reason gradual dose tapering is advised.
You are on 20 mg dose and in this situation, doses should be reduced by around 5 mg every month. After around 6-12 weeks you will be able to stop the drug completely. This will not result in withdrawal.
