Arlie Posted April 2, 2008 Share Posted April 2, 2008 Okay - way last year, my doc and I (my GP) talked about reducing the amount of Celexa I was taking. I was doing ok on 40mg, then my sister died, and job stuff was happening...I needed to go up to 60. In Feb 2007 I was diagnosed with inattentive ADD for the first time ever at 51 years of age. Now, I had heard from a few people on an ADD forum that depression CAN be a symptom of ADD (it is also an illness all on its own, so I wasn't being hasty here ). So...a few days ago, I contacted my GP about trying to go down to 40. She said to do two weeks of 40 one day, 60 the next, and repeat - then if all is ok to stay at 40. So I am at the end of week one. Libido has woken up...yay! I have just had a bit more "feeling" instead of being so 'flat'. I was a musician for maaaany years, and this morning the lyrics to a song I hadn't sung in YEARS nudged its way into the back of my head. Yesterday I found myself feeling snappish for just a moment, and it went away quickly. Today, I had several weepy spells at work...but interestingly, they went away easier than before...mind you, I had to do some cognitive thinking to help at times! I felt overwhelmed - but heck, there WAS a lot of work piled up and I 'melted' because I felt it was too much... Slight headache, constant and annoying, in last several days. I also started a heavy metal detox, which maybe wasn't the smartest idea. I just want to compare notes with people who have tapered down or off (I am not going OFF). I was afraid earlier today that I would have to go back up to 60. Because of the few good things happening, I was hoping I wouldn't have to. What's your story on this? Thank you...
