My 15-yr-old, 107 lb daughter is on 1/2 of a 20 mg tablet per day and took 8 full tablets 2 days ago. (She thought it would help her sleep, but she vomited all night.) Should we wait to start her on her regular dosage? How long will this be in her system?
Celexa has a 36 hour half life... meaning it will take 36 hours for 50% of the drug to leave her system and another 36 hours for it to be fully out of her system.-
I strongly advise you to speak to her doctor first and explain the situatation before you decide take any action on your own regarding the medication and dosage.-
All the best and take care
