Failte, Highlander! As Janie says, work with your doctor on a decreasing dose schedule where you taper your dose over several weeks as you're taking the high end dosage. This will help avoid withdrawal symptoms. But beware of a possible rebound of your original symptoms after you stop the medication ~ if this happens you can start your citalopram again or switch to a different medication.
Good luck and best wishes to you, Wildcat
