Celexa Making Me So Sick

2 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post  

My doc gave me Celexa for my anxiety. I also take blood pressure medicine. The Celexa is making me so sick after a wk. I have constant nausea, gastritis, back pain, headaches, no appetitie, increased anxiety, panic attacks, with hot rushes. I am so miserable, have to lay on the recliner, and could not work today. I was up all night with stomach pain. I am only on 10 mg. Can I stop this medicine, today, or do I have to wean off ?

The first 2 weeks on an AD are the hardest, then the side effects begin to fade. Maybe you should give it some more time? Celexa is great for anxiety, in my experience. But I did feel "sick" for several days, with headaches, nausea, hot flashes and sweating. It got better with time.

Weaning off is generally recommended, to ease the withdrawal. Be sure to check with your doctor before you make any changes.
