    please never apologise, do you understand now? I dont like to think of you worrying over something thats not happening to you, or getting upset over use of the word tardive meaning permenant, it doesnt mean that at all. xx
    Put on citalopram July 2009 during a physical illness - didnt need it. 40mg
    went down to 20mg July 2010 CT in Jan 2012 - 2.5 years on.
    Tried to restart July 2012 due to 1 panic attack (never had one before - start of CT W/D) - adverse reaction
    Down to 1.5mg from the failed RI

    i only took paxil 12 years and celexa one year, when i tapered i had many things, at 0mg i was bad, at maybe 9 months off, i had a severe tardive akathisia until 14 months of, and then it lessen slowly with waves pattern, today i have difficult to rest outdoor, maybe residual akathisia or emotional, nervousness etc, so tardive akathisia is gone away,
