Withdrawls

I've been taking 40mg. of the generic for Celexa for years, but I ran out of my meds, it was my last prescription, but I can't get a refill for it right now because I haven't been to my Doctor this year yet due to my money situation. My OB writes out my prescriptions for me....I haven't been since last year, so they will not get me a prescription refill on them. I haven't taken them for about 4 days...I feel light headed, ill, etc.... I'm not liking this at all. What should I do?

I'm sorry to hear of your money situation, have you asked your doctor about possible financial options, like a payment plan?  A visit just to get your medication refilled shouldn't be too too high.  Also, if you're a cash pay patient, you should be given a pretty nice discount.

I really would recommend getting to the doctor and resuming the Celexa.  It's never a good idea to stop taking those kinds of medications abruptly.  In the very least, if you're not going to continue the med, you should be tapered off.

Let us know how you're doing!
