"FDA warns of heart risks with high doses of Celexa"
Federal health regulators are warning doctors not to prescribe high doses of the antidepressant Celexa, because of the risk of fatal heart complications.
I started on 20mg, was raised to 40mgs and have been on it for 10 years because I suffered anxiety crossing bridges. I live in the Portland, OR area, so that's a big deal here.
My plan now is to taper off to eventually 0mg. I can do bridges just fine now.
