Wondering who else is going through this.... for those who are unfamiliar, Cipralex is a powerful anti-depressant; I stopped taking it completely 4 weeks ago after a 4 month "Taper" of dosage.
The number of withdrawal symptoms are too many to list here, but the most common are:
Extreme fatigue, vivid dreams, tinnitus, IBS, flu-like aches and pains, mood swings
You get the picture.
I had to withdraw from training for a marathon I would have run in 2 weeks time. Since being on the medication I gained 24Ibs (2 stone), which of course slowed me right down, my gait changed and I no longer had the energy to hit the right pace, finish my training runs/intervals.
Has anyone else got good, bad, ugly experiences to share on this?
