    I made a switch

    Has anyone felt any side effects when not weaning off of one medication and switching completely to another. (I went from Lex to Celexa) and I feel odd sensations in my head, my head feels heavy, I get this weird feeing around my temples, my nose and face feel tight, my eyes felt tight when I moved them from side to side... I went from Lex 10mg to Celexa 20 Mg.... I think I feel better on 10 Mg of celexa though?? Anyone do better on lower dosages of medication??? I dont know... Help please

    when I was weening off of paxil I couldn't do 30mgs: I felt AWFUL, but once I went down to 20mgs I felt 100% better. So it's quite possible lower dosages (or certain dosages: 40mgs of paxil was fine for me) are better for some.

    Also, you're probably just feeling the effects of withdrawal. Give it a bit more time -- if it *is* withdrawal it'll go away eventually
