Celexa tinnitus

Common Questions and Answers about Celexa tinnitus

celexa

Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Yes, celexa can increase tinnitus by causing auditory hallucinations and stuffy nose and ears. Hence please discuss with your doctor regarding this. Since you had tinnitus before you started this drug, other causes should also be looked into. Besides loud noises, other causes include severe head trauma, sinus and respiratory infections, ear infections, wax build-up, high blood cholesterol, food allergies, and certain types of tumors.
has anyone with tinnitus ever take celexa and feel like it made it worse ? and i have no idea what is causing mine. but its getting worse. i feel i have sinus problems. maybe that.
I was on 20mg of Celexa and I noticed a loud ringing in my ears while I was on it.
i had a slight ringing in the ear before i started to take celexa two months ago. since then i have this buzzing noise and other noises in my head. im trying to cut back on it i want to get off of it. has anyone every went through this and how long does it last. i really want to beat my doctor for this.
I have been on Celexa 20mg once a day for two years. I have taken a month and gradually reduced the dosage and now I am completely off it. Now I am having a series of unusual symptoms including a constant buzzing in my head. I n addition, I am having what I can best describe as brain rushes or brain contractions every few minutes. I know this is not blood pressure related because it doesn't change at all when I workout or run.
Hi have been taking celexa scnece my brother passed on three yrs ago and had a baby A couple weeks before he died.. I have had alot of forgetful ness in the last 6 mo?
Most of the other medication (effexor, Prozac, Zoloft) produce side effects which I did not care for. My doctor and I finally gave Celexa a try. I was taking low dosages (10mg daily) of Celexa and I was doing fine. A few months back my doctor suggested I try Lexapro. I have found that most of the bad side effects of Celexa have been eliminated with this new and so far wonderful medication, I am currently taking 10mg Lexapro daily.
I'm curious. I've seen alot of people using celexa complain of fatigue and weight gain which can be typical of some SSRIs. I've noticed that several people have had a drop in T4 while on celexa (TSH/T4 checked prior to initiating antidepressant therapy). Is there any literature out there on this? Can you offer some enlightenment? Thank you.
I'm a 39 male with major depression and GAD. I take Celexa 40mg, Ativan 1mg, and Trazodone 100mg at bedtime. But the meds don't seem to work for my insomina. Can I add unisom or not a good idea to take also? I hate call my dr. tommorrow and tell him the meds aren't working for me. I have taken Ativan, Trazodone, and unisom to help me sleep before. My doc switch the Celexa from morning to nighttime tonight. And I was taking Ativan 3x a day now only at night or when needed.
he put me on xanax first when the anxiety was really bad. then celexa a few months later witch i took for about a week. when i started taking celexa is when i got tinnitus.. i have stopped taking it for a couple months now and still have tinnitus. A few weeks after the anxiety started i got a reallllly bad sinius/respritory infection or something that lasted for two weeks, it clogged up my nose/ears and gave me a terrible cough.
The total amount of time I was on Zoloft was 5 yrs before I was switched over to Celexa. Anyhow, I had NO ringing in the ears from Zoloft. None. About the main side-effect I had on Zoloft was fatique, lack of libido, constipation, lethargy, more fatique...you get the picture. Zoloft helped me with my panic attacks ,which many yrs ago I did suffer. Zoloft also helped me with my clinical depressions. That's why my Doc prescribed "Z" for me.
However I will try to provide you with some useful information. I am sorry to hear about the tinnitus (or ringing in your ears). Tinnitus may be a benign finding other than the annoyance. Some patients become reconciled to its presence. Treatment options have been discussed in the literature such as using a hearing aid to improve audition which may suppress the ringing or using a another form of hearing aid to provide a sound to diminish the ringing.
As you all probably know by now I am withdrawing off Ativan(What a horrible pill) I am tapering at a rate of 5%/week and I am getting Tinnitus,Depression,becoming antisocial, lightheaded, feelings like I am almost out of my body... Should I cross my Clonazepam 0.75mg twice daily over to Valium, man is this hard.... I was told by a Pharmacist that the Clonazepam(Klonopin) should buffer the Ativan withdrawl, I just want off the Ativan F#%^ SAKE....
i thought that everything would be fine after stopping. was i ever wrong. tinnitus, major equlibrium issues(feeling like being on a boat all the time), electric shock sensations, feeling like rubber, constant heart pounding 24/7, sunburn and freezing sensations all the time. These physical symptoms have been with me for 2 and half years. i never had any of them prior.
About a year ago I woke up with pulsatile tinnitus in both ears and a pounding heart. Then it progressed to body tingles then numbness in my feet, intermittent and worse in the right. I feel a lot of head pressure. I have seen 3 ent's, only one took me seriously and has ordered a head MRI later this month and I am also have an echocardiogram next week. I also feel quite ill most of the time and sometime feel clumsy and stumbly. I am so afraid as parkinsons runs in our family.
After quiting the booze the blisters stopped appearing. I also have tinnitus but has no relations to the hep c.Welcome aboard by the way. Bob.
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....
For 10 years I was on Luvox with pretty good results. After ten years I started having tinnitus and visual anomalies, like while driving down the road I couldn't look at the things passing by because it started to make me feel dizzy. Then one night after about a week of switching manufactures for my Luvox, I rolled over in bed and it seemed everything else came a second later. Thinking it was the Luvox, I tapered off of it over several weeks.
I recently started on Klonopin to stop those episodes and it worked well until I was put on Celexa. Last night after only three days on Celexa I had another strong shakedown and less than 24 hours after my last drink! I noticed the Celexa was causing increased tremor so I think it aggravated the withdrawal. I stopped the Celexa and hope not to shake today!
buspirone Dizziness, GI upset, headache, nervousness, CNS or emotional effects, nonspecific chest pain, tinnitus, dream disturbances. Did you doctor also tell you that when buspirone is prescribed in conjunction with an antidepressant, there is a much greater chance that it will help in treating your anxiety? If not, I'd get on the stick with him/her and ask that question. Buspirone when take alone is a tame drug. Abrupt stoppage may cause some minor headache and/or GI upset.
Fever Neck pain/stiffness fatigue Depression (never before) diarreah (up to 10x a day and waking me up at night) nausea/vomiting no appetite lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks lisp sensitivity to light and sound feeling like I was in a dream overstimulated easily felt like I could't retain any information top lip tingling and numb headache sever dizziness (couldn't drive) prickling sensation in hands when I washed them I started celexa at this time for panic attacks (built up over the breast cancer scare)
I was on Celexa (Celexa and Lexapro are almost the same, but Lexapro is stronger) for about almost a month and I more depressed than i EVER felt imaginable. I felt the same way, I didnt want to hurt myself or anyone else, but i felt so worthlesss, like life had no meaning anymore, when i shouldnt because i have 2 gorgeous little girls and a husband, so i knew something was wrong.
Last year I developed pulsatile tinnitus, I still have it, I have seen 3 ents and now am having an MRI. Along with this came malaise, tingling and numbness in my legs and feet, intermittent. My hands feel stiff and have some twitches, not tremors. I have been told it is stress and now am on Celexa, first day, but I am terrified it is Parkinsons because my father had it and my grandfather. Some days I feel really good, and others not so good, I do find that it is worse under stress. Any ideas??
I have Benign Fasciculation Syndrome (sporadic twitching) which might have been brought on by stress/anxiety. I also have Tinnitus which may/may not have been induced by anxiety (actually I think it came about from over-exposure to loud music). So could this head condition somehow be anxiety-related? I know that dizziness is often a symptom of anxiety but being that I don’t have that, I’m wondering whether my “drugged,” “drunk-like,” “woozy” feelings could still brought on by it.
Another cause of tinnitus is presbycusis (hearing loss that occurs as people age). Hearing loss is the single most consistent factor in people with tinnitus. As a rule the tinnitus will occur at the same frequencies as the hearing loss. Tinnitus from prescription drugs and over the counter medications. Caffeine, stimulants that may cause the heart to beat faster. Many prescription medications list tinnitus as a side effect.
Thats when I started on Celexa prescribed by my doc. I only took it for 3 days cause it gave me high anx and panic attacks which I never had so intense. I didnt take anything for 14 days after I stopped the Celexa and had bad days and good, but the bad got worse and thats when I started on Zoloft.

I had a horrible headache after this with tinnitus and was dry heaving all night long. -I wake up in the night from random intense pain, a few nights it has been left pointer finger, another night it was the ball on the bottom of my left foot. Some days I will get other random intense pains like this lasting only a few seconds in certain spots. -My tonsills were swollen but completely painless for like a week.
THe doctor ended up prescribing celexa to me. I have been taking it for 2 weeks now and have not seen much of an improvement. I have to go back to the doctor next week so she can check my progress. I am not getting the stomach problems, but the anxiet, (or what ever you want to call it) is driving me crazy. I really don't think it is normal to be like this all the time. Little things set me off. My mom is the same way, but maybe worse. I try to control my anger, but can't seem to.
