Celexa and tremors

Common Questions and Answers about Celexa and tremors

celexa

They do weird things to me --- like LITERALLY tilt the world to the side and my head feels heavy -- and I yawn non-stop and I get tremors... Anyhow --- I took XANAX and Lorazepam. Those both worked TREMENDOUSLY for me --- and I only had to take them as needed. If you're getting depressed tho - be careful --- OK? Remember this TX does make you feel strange --- and it DOES mess with your hormones and feelings/emotions.
I did take my dose of celexa, and I am not going to drink anymore. I don't know if they actually are tremors, but that's all I can think to call them. My muscles all over get tense and uncontrollably vibrate/tremor. Should I stop the medication and call the doctor, and why could this be happening?
my PCP thinks its just anxiety and has prescribed me celexa and Librium...I will say that the tremor has got somewhat better but Is still there....I have only been taking the celexa for 4 days and I kno that it takes up to a month or longer to get into your system.... I have myself convinced that its neurological but my MRI came back good along with my bloodwork....
amiodarone, coumadin, cardizem, midodrine, advair, celexa, forteo, pacemaker. I have a-fib, past T.I.A, a P.FO. and diplopia which started about 1 yr. ago after a severe headache. I can't have an MRI, ct scan looked ok other than a lg. sinus cyst on the same side as the diplopia. My vision is not double when one eye is closed, but it is vertically double mostly on convergence. I have 2 questions. One involves the double vision.Does it sound nuero. or opthamological?
I currently take 40mg of celexa at night and am taking 37.5 mg of phentemerine. I have not noticed any side effects but what are they I am curious if ever i noticed something different about myself. I cant find anything on the internet to find an answer to this question.
I also take xanax and Inderal and the doc just put me on celexa today. I am so freaked out about taking it I cut a 20 mg. tablet into 4 and took one 1 which would be 5 mg. I am sitting here with the hands sweating expecting all the bad side affects. I don't want to keep going through the anxiety hell but wondering if I can kick this without all these meds. Antone been in my shoes?
I don't stress over useless things anymore and my boyfriend says my temper has really subsided. I no longer jump to conclusions and get upset so easily. I am 20mg a day of Celexa and I have Xanax in case of a panic attack. I have only taken one and that was a day after I started the Celexa. I have not gained any weight on it, and I sleep more than normal now. But thats ok, because I love to nap. Other than that, I have not noticed any other side effects.
Hi. I started Celexa several months ago, and had the hardest time adjusting to it...mood swings, tremors, physical inertia, etc. After being on it for a few months, well, it doesn't seem to be doing much to help me, so I decided to taper off -- which I'm doing very slowly.
My neurologist thinks it might be restless leg syndrome- even though tremors are located throughout my body (I'm waiting blood test results- thyroid and iron levels). I was put on an antidepressant (Celexa) and other meds are to be determined. Do you have any ideas?? Thank you.
I too take celexa and please give it the time to work .the tiredness will pass.Also do you take any vitamin supplements like the B vitamins? that will help with the tiredness.Depression seems to suck you dry of nutrients as well as make you feel bad everywhere.I have been on the celexa for about 6 years now and I wouldnt trade it for anything.I really dont have any of the side effects you get with other anti depressents Like the tics, tremors, and sexual dysfunction.
He also is on 3 medicines for High Blood pressure as well as cholesterol medicine along with Celexa and Abilify for depression. He also takes potassium and baclofen for the dystonia from the parkinsons. He has had an episode during the night since last September. He wakes up chomping his teeth and then breaks out in an awful sweat and also has amnesia for about 2 hours afterwards. We thought it was the Amantadine but we have discontinued that the past week. We had another episode last night.

I've been on Celexa for 1 week. I was on 40mg of Paxil for 7 years. I have depression and panic attacks. I've been having the "classic" paxil withdrawl symptoms: -vertigo(wow, it has a name? I thought I was crazy for feeling this!) -flu like symptoms -extreme moodiness -tremors -etc, etc, etc... Anyway, my doctor said nothing about weening off of Paxil. Are the effects of Celexa supposed to (for lack of a better phrase) take over where the Paxil left off?
Lexapro is very similar to Celexa, it has one of the main components of Celexa, and tends to be overall easier to tolerate, so yes, if you ARE going to discuss that with your doc...that may be the way to go. Good point, kickbutt!
You probably already know this by now, since this post was years ago. Lol. But, i thought I shared it anyway. I'm on Celexa and am currently struggling with the similar issue you dealt with years ago, also, twice, I'd feel numbness from my arms to my chest, and lightheaded and that's after eating certain foods. I've talked ot my doc about this reaction and all he'd tell me is that I am anxious that's why, but how can I be anxious when I am on meds? Maybe med isn't workng mfor me? Lol.
I started 10mg of Celexa 12 days ago and have had increased anxiety since I started it. I feel like I drank a bunch of coffee and kind of shaky. Has anyone else had this happen? If so, did it go away?
So I am left with a diagnosis of anxiety. Yesterday I was prescribed Celexa and have just had an excruciating 24 hours including tremors, burning in my limbs, crying and clenching teeth. This morning I have finally taken an Adivan and don't feel great but at least I can walk across the room. I will stop this drug immediately and just wanted to leave a record for anyone else who might have this experience.
I've read a few posts about anxiety and tremors. My tremors started when I started medication. I've tried sooo many different meds and get bad side effects. The meds really did a number on me. Now I have the shakes in my hands and left leg all the time. Sometimes it's hard to write. I'm getting an MRI in 2 days to check.
Tremors are not normal, and may be from anxiety or side effect of medication. YOu should talk to your doctor about this...the cure is worse than the illness, and there are other medications to consider.
Its been awhile since I haven't woken up with neck pain in the top of the back part of my neck. I also suffer from horrible anxiety. 8 days ago I started 20mg of celexa and two after I developed a constant tremor in arms, legs, jaw, and head. It isn't a violent tremor and it's barely noticeable. I went to the doctor and he cut my dosage in half but I stopped taking two days ago of this fear I developed over the tremors. My mind is going crazy with thoughts about serious diseases.
The combination of drugs, citalopram that is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor and amphetamine and dextroamphetamine that are dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor is not recommended. Amphetamines may possess serotonergic activity and should not be administered with SSRIs as there is an additive risk of serotonin syndrome. Enhanced sympathomimetic effects is possible.
Not sure if it's withdrawals from Celexa, or side effects from the Wellbutrin SR. Took 40mg of Celexa for a year and Psychiatrist switched me to Wellbutrin SR 150mgs a day. He told me to stop the Celexa cold turkey. That I'd be fine, and just start taking the Wellbutrin SR the next day. This was on Oct 4th that I started the Wellbutrin SR and stopped the Celexa. Glad my sex drive is back, but other than that, I feel like taking my head off with a chainsaw about 1/2 the time.
I took Celexa a few weeks ago (one 10 mg pill) and got serotonin syndrome and had to go to the hospital. Now I've been having severe panic attacks and social anxiety again, and I'm desperate. The doctor have me celexa again, and I'm taking 5mg. I took it last night, I was up most of the night. Worrying, anxious, etc. I feel pretty shakey today, it's hard to focus, I haven't worked on anything I need to get done. I have no motivation and I feel on edge.
I did and it helped but then nothing for another 7 days so I took matters into my own hands and threw out 6 of the 12 prescriptions including the celexa and oxycontin. My psychiatrist was against it and said I'd have siezures. Well, for 3 weeks my eyes felt funny every time I moved them or my head, but no siezures and in the end I felt so much better. No more drugged/tired/sluggish feeling. I still have chronic stomach problems with alternating bouts of diahrea/constipation, nausea and reflux.
anxiety disorder and the therapist I went to said I have borderline personality disorder and gave me klonopin and celexa. I take the klonopin because it controls my shaking and tremors but I am not satisfied. I feel like something else is wrong and they wont test me for anything else. They tell me I am too young to have vascular problems (32) and since I have no cholesterol and I am not overweight this deters them from a heart problem.
Look, I have friends that smoke MJ and also take an SSRI medication. They seem ok with it and have no problem. That is them and everyone is different. For example I suffer from depression and anxiety dissorder and if I smoke MJ then I get massive anxiety and my whole body goes into a tremmor. Depends of the person I guess.

My question is in regards to Celexa (Citalopram) and using protein shakes while working out. Every protein shake appears to contain Tryptophan because it's an amino acid that is part of protein. Everywhere I read, I see the DO NOT combine any SSRI and Tryptophan. I even asked my pharmacist and she said not to consume any protein shake with your SSRI, for fear of serotonin syndrome. Could you please shed some light on this and let me know if it's ok to take protein shakes while on Celexa.
I just discontinued taking Effexor XR after about 2 and a half years and it was the most difficult and painful thing I have ever done! The side effects for me were: increased depression, confusion, dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, and very weird dreams. The only relief I am getting is by switching to an SSRI, Celexa. The "Discontinuation Syndrome" from the Effexor XR seems to be going away very slowly, but I hope surely! I hope that's helpful!
