withdrawal from celexa

I have been on a low dose of celexa for 5 years.  I tapered on slowly and now have been totally off the medication for 3 weeks.  I am experiencing light-headness, dizziness, and feeling somewhat "spaced out".  I am not taking any other medications and otherwise a healthy 54 yo female.  thanks

Did you taper off Celexa as well or suddenly stop? If you gradually tapered off I doubt its the drug but always check with the Dr. I have been on celexa for a lot of years myself did a dumb thing recently (see my recent post) . Unfortunately or fortunately depending on your point of view I'll probably be on it for the rest of my life.

thanks for you response.  I did taper off slowly, so I thought.  Everyday seems a little better.  I just want to clear my head and be Rx free.

I have never been on Celexa myself, but I have read many posts regarding withdrawal from it and it seems to take people a month or two to feel completely normal.  If you put Celexa up in "Search Medhelp" you can read other posts specific to your question.  

Everyday should get a little better.

Take care.......

You are going through withdraw.  I am 3 weeks off of Lexapro and having similar symptoms with extreme nausea.
