    You can have real withdrawal symptoms if you stop them quickly!  Your doctor can help taper you off of them...but you are going to need to keep in contact with your doctor because both homicidal and suicidal thought of impulses occur.  If they are working for WHY STOP?  Depression is a imbalance of chemicals in your brain...if the meds can fix this why stop them- it wuld be the same thing if you stopped blood pressure medicine,  lease talk to your doc about all of your options.

    I am so glad you have coverage and can take them again!!!!

    you need to talk to a dr. Antidepressants are sometimes tricky or unsafe if stopped suddenly.

    This is different for everyone taking from a week to up to four weeks for some.Consult a physician or,more preferably a pharmacist for more info or alternatives to meds!Hope this helps.Peace.

    12 hours to 24 hours. Thats why they need to be taken when prescribed by physician. Skip it and there could be trouble.

    I can feel the difference the day after I stop them but that's probably mental.............

    Talk to your doctor.. all med are different.
