thursday novemeber 22nd i was prescribed celexa 10mg for 7 days. then the following thursday i would start on 20 mg.
first side effects i noticed were diarrhea, insomnia also got really hyper and was just so awake. i don't know how to explain it.
wednesday november 28th i started to notice heart palpitations when i went to bed. thursday they got worse and happened all day. they werent constant, but they were happening. it's like a flutter then a long hard deep beat i feel through my chest and throat. i got scared and didnt take my 20mg dosage. friday i went to the clinic. they did an ecg. i saw the doctor. the doctor prescribed me effexor which i will start monday.
he said my heart looked fine from the ecg for like 5 seconds while i wasnt having palpitations. the nurse says im probably getting them because of my anxiety.
i dont understand how they could come to that conclusion. Ive been dealing with these issues for countless years and and only decided last week to try my last option which lead me to celexa, and now im randomly getting heart palpitations. that ive never experienced until i started taking this medication.
i havent taken anything since wednesday and im still getting the palpitations. I don't know what to do. it feels like when I try to tell the doctors or nurses how im feeling they dont actually LISTEN to what im saying.
