I've been on 20 mgs of celexa for about 2 wks now, before that, 15 for a wk and 10 for two wks. I want/ think I need to go to 30, which I was on last year when I quit bc I felt fine. Should I go from 20-25 or just go to 30. Will the side effects be bad with that jump? Please let me know.

Thanks.

    Hi Brian. I've been on cilexa (citalopram) since January. I went from 10-20-30-40 each after a week. No side effects that I hadn't experience before happened, nor the intensity. It's definitely okay to jump from 20-30 !! Best of luck ! It's a wonderful medication.

      Annelise,

      Glad to hear you did well on the increase. No real side effects jumping from 20-30.? Noted. The reason I want to jump is that I still a wee bit anxious with heart palpitations and insomnia. I'm traveling for the holiday and will do this increase when I come back. Thanks!

      Nick,

      I went from 10-15. But I'm awfully sensitive to meds. I know people jumped right to the 20 and had little to no issue as well. I did 15 for a week then jumped to 20.

      Thanks Brian. I will go up to 20 and see how I get on. I had to come off Zoloft  after 10 days as I also was to sensitive for it. All the best

    hi Brian

    I jumped from 20 to 30 and got some unwelcome side effects of racing thoughts and others but when going from 20-25-30 is was much smoother and I'm nearly settled on 30 now
