After citalopram has seemed to stop working for depression/anxiety I started a cross taper of citalopram to Effexor yesterday. stage one of the taper is reducing from 20mg cit to 10mg cit and 37.5mg XR for two weeks so yesterday I began. Had slight headache and a few jitters. For the next step my psych suggested agent the initial two weeks I could take the 10mg cit every other day for a week then stop it and take Effexor at 75mg. My question is really about the second step of taking citalopram every second day, would I not be better just starting the 75mg of Effexor since I'll be replacing the 10mg with the citalopram with Effexor? I feel I may have withdrawals if I start and stop the citalopram every other day. Any advice?
