I've run out of my effexor xr 150mg and can't get it filled for three days. Would it be ok to take the same dose of celexa for those days until I get my effexor filled??? Need to know asap...
Hi, jonezzee! They are two entirely chemically different drugs. You could potentially feel some withdrawal symptoms from the Effexor and some induction side effects from the Celexa. Can you ask the pharmacist for enough just for the three days?
Good luck and best wishes, Wildcat
I tried to swap one AD for another for a couple of days thinking it would make me feel better. It didn't work out well & the doc said never to do that again. I've taken so many diff ones that I don't remember which. I'm taking Celexa currently & it's not doing much. I'm thinking of taking Effexor XR. Do you find that Effexor XR is better than Celexa? I don't think that Celexa has the withdrawal that the Effexor has, but Effexor could work better. Are you going without anything for the 3 days?
