Can I Stop Taking Celexa 20mg After 2 Days?

Can I stop taking Celexa 20mg after being on it for 2 days. I have read alot about antidepressants and I do not want to take them. I am taking it for mild depression.

Thanks,

Diane G.

Answer

Hi, Diane. It probably wouldn't hurt anything to stop taking it after only a couple of days, but I hope you will also talk with your doctor about this. Yes, there are possible side effects with any drug, but some people have no problems with them and feel so much better. Maybe if Celexa doesn't work, you can try something else. Just be sure your doctor knows that you've stopped taking it. Thanks for writing in.
