I am currently weaning off this medication. I am starting out by reducing my dose 25mg (I was on 200mg daily) & hope to be able to reduce that amount again in 3-4 weeks. I have read recently that SSRI's cause mitocondrial damage etc so I do not wish to continue with it but address the actual root cause (which I beleive is the effects of M.E). Before that, I was wondering if there is anything I can do to help my body/brain as I come off it. I am pre-diabetic so am following a mediterranean/low GI diet, taking magnesium, vit D, calcium & fish oil. I also take Nexium for chronic reflux.
