Ok.  I have been on paxil and 3 days ago switched to celexa. For the past few days I have been feeling extremely nausious. As well, very dizzy.  I know its withdrawal but why am i feeling so sick? When will it go away????????

For me the 3-6 days are the worst of things. i think you are feeling sick because your body is adjusting to a new drug. Hang tight, i know its painful, but hang in there. Contact your doctor if you feel like you need to.

question, did you just stop paxil and start celexa? Or are you on both now transitioning to the celexa?

hang in there, drink lots of fluids, and take care of yourself.

Also i belief the half life of paxil is shorter than celexa. Meaning the paxil will exit you blood stream faster than the celexa enters and takes effect. This maybe be causing the problems for you. Your doctor would know best though, but i hope they're piggy backing the medications for the transition period.

I weaned down to 10mg of paxil for 5 days and then stopped that and started the celexa at 10mg and then I will increase that to 20mg in a couple of days. I have just been feeling so aweful.  What do you mean by piggybacking? Like taking both drugs at the same time?
