I have had a dry mouth, swollen uvula, night sweats, and horrible drainage for more than 2 weeks, we thought it was a virus so my mother took me to the minute clinic to check it out because we believed that it could be mono. After waiting for over two hours to get into the minute clinic and get it done it turned out I tested negative for mono but they sent my results to a lab just to make sure because there's a 98% chance that the test could be wrong. I haven't felt any relief no matter what I take and when I looked celexa up online the side affects where the same as what I am currently having (I'm taking 20mg of celexa) and I'm not sure if I'm sick with a virus or its just celexa side affects and I need to go visit my doctor. What do you think? (I'm below the age of 18 and have been taking celexa for more than a month.)
Sounds like a combination of Celexa side effects and an infection whether viral or bacterial. Did the minute clinic do a throat culture or go ahead and put you on antibiotics? The swollen uvula and drainage would not be because of the Celexa. You might want to talk to your doctor particularly about the swollen uvula as this can be dangerous if swells too much and blocks air passage. Otherwise an antihistamine might be helpful to combat the drainage, again discussing with your doctor is advisable.
I have to go with Laurieshay on this one, as well as pledge, I the symptoms u r having may be cause your dosage is to high, so the doctor lowing the dosage might help if not it might not be the antidepresant for u, I was on this med and I couldn't take it I am very sensitive to meds ssri/ssnri I am no on a pamelor... As what Laurieshay has pointed out I think u should see an ent, for u having drainage etc doesn't sound like a side effect from celexa... The clinic as Laurie stated should have checked u and possibly added an antibiotic... I had drainage from my ear couple months ago and they told me it was from mastioditis and ear infection left untreated which I didn't even no I had an ear infection for there were no symptoms... I highly suggest u schedule an appt. for an ent and let them check u out to see what is going on, an why u have this drainage... good luck...
