Has anyone ever come off of Celexa. How was your experience with this drug?
Anyone?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Just Want to Talk group.

Partner and I have been taking for 10 yrs. Partner tried to wing herself of on her own and suffered a nervous breakdown. Do work with a Dr. or therepist if considering getting off the drug.

Hi Susan, I was on celexa for a short time. It wasn’t helping my depression at all, so the doc pulled me off of it. I didn’t have any problems coming off of it.

Hey I am on that drug and I take myself off it all the time I do get any side effects from it

I agree with taogirl2 that any change in medication always check with dr first,

As a nurse, I say wean yourself off. Don’t play Russian roulette with your brain chemicals. Full dose one day alternated with 1/2 dose next day, for 5-7 days. Then 1/2 dose daily for 5-7 days and so on and so forth.
If the med isn’t working for you, go to the dr, explain, and get something else. He/she will let you know best way of weaning too.

I meant wean slowly if you decide to do this.
