Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar f tn Hi. I have panic disorder. Took Celexa for 7 years and it pooped out. Pdoc prescribed Luvox. Have taken that for five months and it's just not doing the trick. Still have anxiety and breakthrough panic attacks. He has given me the choice of lexapro or Zoloft. Since Celexa and lexapro are so similar, I'm concerned that the lexapro won't work given that the Celexa stopped working.

Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Im on celexa 20 mg for about 21 days, I also take trazodone 50mg And gabapentin 200mg 3x daily for the last week. Just started naltrexone 50mg as of today. My long time meds are for blood pressure... Amlodipine 5mg and lisinopril/HCTZ 20/25mg. Oh and lamotrigine 50 mg for the last two weeks. I quit heavy drinking a about 8 days ago reneeding hospitalization fot 4 days due to extreme withdrawal. Anyway as of today I'm noticing definite noticeable hand tremors.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn I then switched to 10 mg of celexa. I am having severe headaches, confusion, dizziness, tremors, naseau, lack of appetite and diarrhea. I have only been on the celexa for 5 days. I am also having lots of muscle pain. Am I still withdrawing from the zoloft or am I having serotonin syndrome? I have been on antidepressants for 13 years and should have weaned much slower. Thanks for your help. This has been going on for weeks now.
Avatar f tn 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!
824226 tn?1238634194 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.
Avatar f tn So today my Celexa dose was upped from half a pill to 1 whole pill and the side effects are coming back like when I first started... Sweaty, can't sleep, headache, stiff neck, clenching teeth... Etc. I don't know what to do. I tried taking stuff for it, including an Oxy but still no change. What can I take to make these side effects not so bad? I don't see the dr till Thursday, so I can't ask her... If anyone has any suggestions?
1397822 tn?1294279534 Hi! I am new to this web-sites so forgive my mistakes. I was just wondering if anyone out there experiences involuntary jerking movements in different parts of your body. I wouldn't necessarily call them "tremors" more like just an occational jerk here and there several times a day. I started taking celexa about 5 months ago for mild depression and more recently phentermine for weight loss but these jerking movements were happening way before the phentermine.
Avatar f tn The last one I had was on was Celexa and that was for about 6 years. 2 months ago I had this huge trigger and my mind could not stop ruminating and ruminating and ruminating about it. I couldn't stop pacing so I went into the mental hospital and they took my antidepressant away saying that I was manic possibly. I have PTSD so I just had a trigger and I guess the Celexa pooped out on me. The doctor eventually put me on Effexor because I begged for an antidepressant.
1131131 tn?1275108488 Common side effect when starting are nausea and dizziness. High blood pressure, sweating, tremors, shaking are definitely a bad reactions and might also occur with a SNRI. You can try but i think this bad reaction can be avoided with Lyrica or Neurotin but who knows, you could have a bad reaction too but they mechanisms of action are totally different from the SNRIs and SSRIs. Please consider that I'm not a doctor nor a pharmacist and those issues must be discussed with you doctor.
915369 tn?1355314810 At first I was taking 300mg twice a day - but I was dragging all over the place. Then they gave celexa and take that with the Lithium. I've been taking that for about 7 months and things seem okay. I'm better than I use to be but my memory is declining. At first I did have tremors because I was taking too much lithium. I would suggest if you start feeling the side effects of tremors, thirst, insomnia, halliculations call your doctor.
Avatar f tn I was on cipralex and Wellbutrin for 1 and a half years and then my doc switched me to Effexor for a year which caused more side effects than anything so iv been back on cipralex for about a week, I guess we will see how that goes.
Avatar f tn I have also tried Paxil, Celexa and Zoloft and they all made me feel lethargic, sleepy and in the mood for nothing. Yes, bupropion makes it hard for me to sleep and makes me slightly edgy, but I get the energy and the feelings of motivation. it's really different for everybody. I don't get the tremors etc, though.
Avatar n tn It is prescribed for many reasons, high blood pressure, anxiety, cluster headaches, and tremors. It does have a break-in period, and low energy, and sleepiness are part of the break-in period, which can take up to 6 weeks. I have never heard of it being prescribed for depression, but rather anxiety. I think she needs to return to her doctor to re-evaluate this medication. She is in a rough situation, to be 75 and having to care for your father, I can understand her depression.
Avatar f tn My son has been takiing this med Vyvanse for adhd, so I decided to take it to see if it would help me with my depression and anxiety, and it worked great, I didn't have any side effect to it. This is why I ask if its okay to take Vyvanse for my anxiety, right now I'm taking celexa but its not doing nothing for me anymore. I've been taking Celexa for the past 3 yrs and I think its time for me to change my meds.
Avatar f tn I was on celexa 40mg for 4 years and it didn't work that much for me. I never felt normal like myself, and didnt enjoy doing thing. So i tappered of off that a week ago with guidance. I started Lamictal 12.5 mg today (11/6/13), have to go very slow on the increase dosage to avoid deadly rash. But i am feeling itchy all over my body and face and have light headache. But no rash yet. Did anyone took Lamictal for anxiety and depression? Did it work,and how soon did it started working?

Avatar f tn Have been feeling down for over a month, anxious, shaky, tremors and twitches in leg and eyes, feel like crying somewhat with drawn and times have to force myself to do things. Want to feel back to my old self. I do not know where to go from here. Will the Clexa help these feelings or has Wellbutrin ran its course in my system. Please advise - need help....
1261153 tn?1303906068 what causes fatigue and ear pain and pain behind the eyes with M.S.? why are the symptoms always so...different?
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar m tn ve been taking 500-2000 mg of L-Tryptophan daily for the past 2 weeks to see if it would help me replenish my serotonin as I got off of Celexa (SSRI) over 2 months ago and have horrible anxiety and signs of overpowering dopamine. I've concluded that an SSRI may be something I need go go back on as I've been unsuccessful in feeling even remotely better. My question is how long do I need to wait before safely getting back on Celexa to avoid Serotonin Syndrome?
Avatar m tn CeleXa inhibits reuptake allowing more seratonin to be left in the synaptic gap causing the threshold for the nerves firing to be techniquelly less because less has to be delivered for the spark to occur since more is already there and available. I have smoked M. for 2 years and recently started CeleXa. The only thing ive noticed thus far is that I am less affected by the M. now that I am on CeleXa.
