Side Effects with 10mg Celexa???

Hi folks!

I'm 27 years old. I've been using the 10mg start-up dose of Celexa for the past 3 nights, and this morning I came uncomfortably close to vomiting. My doctor told me that at 10mg, I wasn't supposed to feel anything. But yesterday I had hives and PVCs (skipped heart beats), and today, bad nausea. I can't imagine what it will do to me when I increase my dosage to 20mg in 4 days!

Anybody else have had side effects at 10mg of Celexa?

Re: Side Effects with 10mg Celexa???

IMO celexa isnt for you, your side effects do happen, especially to anxious people but sadly most docs dont know about them

celexa is a prozac or SSRI type antidepressant so I would avoid all the rest of these, there are other types you could try such as effexor and mirtazepine, try also to get some valium type meds

with celexa, 5 mg for the first week would have been better, IMO
