Antidepressant withdrawal symptoms can vary in duration and intensity depending on several factors, including the type of medication, the duration of use, the dosage, and the individual’s sensitivity to withdrawal. In general, the acute phase of withdrawal symptoms may last for a few days up to a few weeks, but some individuals may experience protracted withdrawal symptoms that can last for months or longer. It’s important to work closely with a healthcare provider to develop a safe and effective plan for discontinuing antidepressant medication to minimize the risk of withdrawal symptoms.
