Hello everyone! I am taking Celexa now and have went from 20 mg to 10 mg the last few days. I am unsure how long to taper off of my Celexa. I have my Lexapro on hand and I'm not sure how/when to start taking it. Has anyone out there made this switch before? I really need advice please. I have been on Lexapro before and it worked wonders. Lexapro works great with the GAD (General Anxiety Disorder) and that's why I want to start taking it again... Can someone please help!! (:
My suggestion would be for you to start the lexapro while at the same time decreasing the celexa. When you decrease the celexa hold for about 2 weeks before doing another decrease..
I agree with pamee. You want to get the Lexapro in there to start working or you'll have a period of time you aren't having something for your problems. I just did the same thing going off Effexor and I had no problems at all.
