Hey Shelley


I want to first give you the information we have here on Health Central about Celexa. You may find that information here.


And too...this is a really good question to ask your doctor.  He or she will probably be able to tell you. 


In researching your question I have found that people on various message boards say that it takes from anywhere from 2-6 weeks.  It sounds like you should gradually taper off of it too so you don't have withdrawl symptoms.


Here is a message board where someone asks your same question.


I hope this helps!  Thank you for your question.
