Default celexa

I have been on celexa for 8 years. I noticed that it was not working as well as it had been and spoke to my physician who suggested switching medication. Before switching I have to come off the drug entirely. I stepped down from 3 pills to 2 pills for 3 nights to one pill. It has been a week and I hate the side effects. The doctor prescribed sleeping pills to help with the withdrawal and they made me so dizzy I couldn't function. The doctor said that might be due to the withdrawal of celexa. The fear of the dizziness has caused me not to take the sleeping pill and now two days later I can't sleep because as soon as I doze off I feel I am having a panic attack. I am very irritable, lots of sweats, heartburn and just feeling lousy. The more I think about how I feel, I start feeling panic attacks coming on.
