I started taking Citrolapram to wean myself off of alprazolam, which I have been taking for many years now at roughly .5mg twice a day. I've only been taking a quarter of a pill of Citrolapram for four days now as instructed by my doctor, because I was feeling very apprehensive about taking this medication, and have noticed after only a few days muscle twitches at night, and haven't been able to sleep. I've cut my alprazolam intake to .25mg in the morning since that's when I get the most anxiety and .25mg in the evening. I've also experienced two severe panic attacks while on it. I don't know what to do, I feel like I can't think, I'm riddled with anxiety, my hands shake, my muscles twitch at night, just wondering if this is normal and if these muscle twitches will be permanent.
