I was taking Celexa for at least 3 weeks (could’ve been longer, I’m terrible at keeping up with how long I’ve been taking my meds) and I didn’t feel like it was working for me until I quit cold turkey for 3 days. Eventually, I got very sick around the third day and I took one the next day and I felt better until later that day. I had a massive panic attack and had to call an ambulance to just assure me that I was going to be okay. I haven’t been able to shake off this CONSTANT anxiety since. My chest has this cold/burning sensation constantly and sometimes the anxiety will increase then decrease. I ended up taking Celexa again and then I was too scared to take it again so I took half a Celexa later in the day. Hasn’t helped much at all. So I didn’t take anything for about 2 days and I seen my doctor and she started me on Prozac immediately. I feel like the anxiety has gotten easier but it’s still pretty intense and I want this burning/aching feeling to go away and the pressure and tingly in the back of my head to go away. I have extreme nausea too and gas and diarrhea. I haven’t been able to eat in days. Like nothing. I have a few bites of something and I can’t finish anything. Has anyone else experienced withdrawal symptoms this bad over just taking Celexa for 3 weeks?
