> > I started going of Celexa 5 weeks ago. I tappered gradually (from 60m) down during two weeks (my doc made this procedure several times). After 10 days i felt nervousness, flu like symtoms and an awfull nausea. My doc suggested to start with Zoloft (because of the same mechanism) to overcome this withdrawl symptoms. Now, three weeks later I am on 75 mg Zoloft and the nausea is still coming and going. I am very nervous and have anxiety too. A gastrointestinal observation (cause of the nause) was okay. So whats with the nausea ??? My doc doesnt know if its from discontinuation of the Celexa, from the Zoloft or is it part of my depression ? I didnt feel nausa during my illness, so I think its from the meds. I feel sick of this feeling and want finally to get rid of.
> Ben, maybe you could substitute prozac for zoloft to see if the elimination of the zoloft helps the nausea. If not, then you could probably figure its still from the discontination of celexa.

Thanks Shelli

Should I go on with the Zoloft or trying another AD? I feel anxious and nervous (from Zoloft or celexa discontinuation). I tried Remeron 7.5 mg to augment the 80 mg of Celexa but I felt a heavy sedation and heaeache (caused by the combination ? -- > too much serotonine ?) Remeron could have some antiemetic effects ?! So I am thinking to try the Remeron for the second time. I think that 50 mg Zoloft = 20 mg Celexa concerning the serotonine reuptake efffect?
That would mean I could bear the Remeron better with 50 mg Zoloft than 80 mg of Celexa like before ?!
