    Default Antidepressants and sub taper

    Hello all,

    I am nearing the end of my sub taper. I have been feeling great but just noticed a twinge of anxiety. This is usually the start of what I remember turning into moderate to high anxiety. I have been prescribed celexa in the past for this but opiates took the place for a while. I am wondering if as I continue to taper if the anxiety will grow.

    Is it not a good idea to start on the celexa until I'm done with the sub? I normally would start slow, taking only 5mg for a couple days, then 10, then 15, then stop at 1 20mg pill per day. What does anyone think? Has anyone else done something similar?

    Thanks

    If you were already on celexa it may help you. If you weren't previously taking them I would say NO! You could try it but a little depression is normal doing this. If you hang tough you may be just fine. Keep me posted. God bless.
    I am not a dr. My statements are based on years of experience and related education. Consult with the professional of your choice regarding matters of concern.

    Robert,

    Yes, I did take it a while back for high anxiety and it did help. It is doctor prescribed. However, I am wondering if I should just tough it out and see what happens. My only concern is is if my anxiety returns with a vengeance when I'm clean, I could be in for a rough ride for a while until it starts working. I'm thinking I might just wait and see.
