Robyn - Headaches and tremor are symptoms of serotonin syndrome. Maybe the Celexa at 40mg was overloading your system with serotonin. If the headaches and tremor are just recent (eg within the last week), suddenly getting them after 3 weeks at 40mg is a bit unusual as Celexa is unlikely to build up because of its fairly short half life. A drop by 10mg was probably warranted (tell your doctor). You should expect the headaches and tremor to dissipate within the next week. You are probably just sensitive to the effects of SSRIs (this is not a bad thing). Good luck and keep us posted on your progress - Cam W.
