My PCP put me on celexa 20mg daily for anxiety a little over 2 weeks ago. I started by taking 10mg daily for 6 days, then increased to 20mg for 3 days. I immediately began having intolerable side effects...night sweats, insomnia, tremors, anxiety, dizziness...I was feeling worse than before I took the med! I could not tolerate the side effects any longer, so I made the decision to stop taking it. The day after my first missed dose, I felt a numbnes come over the entire left side of my body. I felt clumsy, dizzy..overall pretty miserable. I called my MD who prescribed ativan as needed for anxiety & he wants me to follow up with him next week. I felt much better yesterday, and I have been sleeping MUCH better...but when I woke up today, the numb feeling/tingling has returned (it seems happen when the ativan wears off). Is it possible to have withdrawal symptoms after having taken celexa for only 2 weeks?! Any insight would be appreciated!
