Hi CTC...

Two suggestions for you.  First, that you should check with your physician regarding how they want to taper you off.  Second, you will probably get a better response to this post if you list it under the "Medications and Therapy" section of the forum.

I do know that most psychiatrists/physicians want their patients to be on an anti-depressant for a minimum of one year.  Oh, and I am on Celexa also, but have only been on it for six weeks now.

The best to you, CTC!...  Chuck

I agree that you should consult with your physician. I made the mistake of tapering off Celexa on my own awhile back. I gradually lowered the dosage from 60 mg down to zero over the course of about 2 months. I had terrible brain zaps for months on end. Then the anxiety came back with a vengeance, so now I'm back on Zoloft.
