No physical withdrawals. Energy is a lot higher, vague feeling of anxiety is up a little and perhaps my patience is a bit shorter than usual, but my actual mood is good and I've been quite productive lately. I'm actually planning to let the citalopram completely clear from my system and then switch to St John's Wort to help the anxiety. Apart from at the time I started citalopram and a relapse that was likely connected to extremely low ferritin levels about 2 years ago, severe depression hasn't been so much the main problem as a vague unfocused panicky anxiety about absolutely nothing that I could pinpoint. I figure I'm older now, and more settled, so I should be able to develop non-med strategies to control it at a manageable level. Better to have some degree of permanent anxiety but actually have enough energy to, you know, live my life.
