How long were you on cypralex, and at what dose?
* months at 20 mg per day. i reduced it to 10 mg for the last 2 weeks before coming off iit
The vertigo can be a symptom of the withdrawal of the Cypralex, but if it lasts much longer, I would see your doctor as you may have something going on in your inner ear that isn't connected to this at all.
Antidepressants sometimes work for migraine sufferers and prevent or reduce the pain involved if you get one. Suffering from migranes and the fear of getting one can sometimes cause depressive or anxious symptoms - it thats the case with you, your doctor may have been trying to hit 3 birds with one stone.
Before you start trying to treat the vertigo, I would make a quick call to your doctor and see how they want to advance with you on that. If your chemical balance is fragile, they may not want you adding anything into the mix - it's not something you'd want to take advice about from someone who hasn't examined you face-to-face.
I hope you feel better very soon, and have a headache-free 2010.
