I have been on Cipralex 0.5 mg for long time. This was prescribed as maintenance dose by my doctor while I was working in one of the gulf countries. I am now back in India after retirement and want to stop taking medication. Whenever I try discontinuing Cipralex I feel lightheadedness and numbness around lips. I thought if I can switch from 0.5 mg of Cipralex to 0.25 mg of Alprax as part of gradually discontinuing the medication.
