... my anxiety and panic attacks came back with a vengeance. Went to the doctor. He said that the Celexa pooped out (stopped working) so he tried upping to 40 mg. Still not helping. So my new doctor suggested that I switch from Celexa to Trintellix. I'm terrified of switching for fear of withdrawal or panic attacks. Does anyone have any advice? Similar stories? Best way to wean from one to another?
I am going through the exact same thing! Been on Celexa for 6-7 years and as of last week I had a huge resurgence of panic attacks! Not fun. I experienced the Prozac poop out after my Zoloft stopped working. Was on it for over ten years and almost no problems at all. They gave me klonopin only 0.5mg to cope which helped tremendously until I got situated on the Celexa. Looks like I'll be in the market for another antidepressant too!
