Hi Dina,

I have also chosen to go off Celexa, cold turkey
because the side-effects were more than I could stand.
I stopped taking it approximately two weeks ago.

One side-effect of going off this drug that I have
noticed is that I am not as tolerant as I used to
be. Any additional side effect that I have noticed
is that I seem to get sick to my stomach and dizzy

On the up side.. I once again have an interest in sex,
which was completely gone before and my memory seems
to be progessively improving along with my productivity.

It does get very frustrating at times to just "not feel
like yourself" but the improvements I have seen have
made it worth it!!

Good luck!!!!!
