I too tried to stop celexa of the same dosage. I had similar symptoms along with blurred vision and anxiety. I spoke with my doctor who assured me that there is in fact a "withdrawal" from this drug for some people. I began alternating one half of a tablet with a full tablet each day for two weeks, then skipping to one half, one half, one full, for two weeks. At this point I am takin only 10 mg. per day. I am experiencing no side effects, yet retaining the benefits of the full 20 mg. dose. You may wish to try theis mehtod instead of quitting "cold turkey". I had been taking 20mg. for several years as part of pain management - several of my doctors concur that it is in fact a safe long term med. Good Luck!
