    Hey there

     

    Well first of all here is the information about Celexa here on Health Central.

     

    Secondly...in researching your question I did find that others have had a problem with sweating in reaction to taking this drug.

     

    Take a look at this forum where they discuss sweating and the use of Celexa.  And here is another forum where a doctor talks about how the side effect of sweating is difficult to remedy.

     

    I would make no changes to your meds and dosage until you discuss it with your doctor first.  I am sure your doc would have a specific regimine for tapering off if that is your choice.  Maybe your doctor can switch you to another anti-deppressant if the Celexa is too bothersome for you.

     

    Good luck and thank you for your question.

      I take Estabs and started Celexa 20  within 3-4 hours, I started sweating, felt weak, and general malaise.  I decreased over 3 day period to 1/2 qd.  Today was more sweating and weakness than I have felt, so I called Dr. and waiting for reply.  Will not take anymore @ this time.  Linda

      I've found it makes me sweat really bad at times.  What did you end up taking?
