Very true! That is what I've always thought too!
10mg of Citalopram - 10/2011 to 12/2011
Adverse reaction - DP/DR
7.5mg - 1 week
5mg - 1 week
2.5mg - 1 week
Off all medication as of 12/17/2011

My story ends with finding out I have Lyme disease which caused my nervous system and hormones to go haywire. Currently in treatment.

Re: physical VS. emotional/psychological symptoms

No prob miriza, and Lmac! That's a big honor, to have what i said bookmarked in your blackberry like that..
October 2009 Started taking Lexapro 20mg regularly
December 2010 Cold turkeyed from 10mg Lexapro
March-April 2011 Started noticing bad symptoms
December 2011 Realized all the bad symptoms were due to withdrawal, found PP and Drugs.com
April 2012 Better than I am 1 year ago but with no emotions and lingering symptoms
