I am taking 75 mg of Effexor and will begin with 20 mg of Celexa
I too am trying to get off Effexor and on to Celexa. I am only on 37.5mg in the morning and down to 9 mg at night. Any lower and I feel like I have the flu and my head feel like it weights 100 lbs. My Dr put me on Celexa 10mg and I was going to taper as quickly as possible but it is going to take a real long time.
When I went to get my refil of Effexor she said I should be off the Effexor within 30 days and taking both is too dangerous. Since I can't get off the Effexor anytime soon, this means no Celexa (which I say, even the 10 mg decreases my anxiety).
Now what? New Dr that lets me take both? Stop the Celexa and feel like crap for a long time?
How are you doing so far with the taper. I would rather take the minimal chance of serotonin toxicity than continue on Effexor forever.
