I am on 40mg of Citalopram which i started the last week in November and it has helped some but my anxiety has gotten really bad. I am considering doing the reverse of how i got up to 40 and breaking the pill in half and going down to 20 per day. is that too much to drop? I do not want to get seretonin syndrome. When i started it was 20 mg per day for the first 10 days then up to 40. I am not going to completely stop taking it but lower the dose until I see my doctor in 2 weeks. Any help would be appreciated.

I have social anxiety and depression any one have other suggestions on medications to try? I am considering asking my psychiatrist for paxil, but not sure if it will help with anxiety.
