I had been taking Citalopram for just about 3 months. The doctors took me off as I have an allergic reaction - skin rash and severe headaches. I want weaned off them, and have been off them for 3 weeks. At first, I was feeling super dizzy and had to take some off work since I felt like I was going to faint all the time. And I WAsfeeling sick. That stopped last week, however I have now gotten hostile, irritable more easily echo other, and feel like I could cry at a drop of a hat? How long will it take until I feel normal again?
Hi, Rebecca!! What were the symptoms that caused you to start taking Celexa in the first place? Could they be returning now that you're off the medication?
If what you describe are the effects of discontinuation you'll probably only need to make it through another week or two.
Good luck and Happy Holidays, WCV
