i have been taking 20 mg celexa per day for 1 year for anxiety, lately i have notice i am warmer then normally and very tired. should i slowly stop taking it?
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?
