I have been taking Celexa for over a month now and can't stand the side effects: night sweats, nauseous, muscle fatigue, and it hasn't helped my depression. Can I take Zoloft tomorrow without first weaning off Celexa since they are both SSRIs?

Some medications have to be completely out of your system before you start another one depending on what they are. Please do consult with your doctor before switching.
