I've been on Celexa for 3 years now and lately have been experiencing major hair loss and hot flashes.  Had my hormones checked and it's not that.  Anybody else have these side effects?
Take care, Softy

Have you tried a google search on this medication. Sometimes they list the possible and adverse reactions to them. No experence here with that medication, Sorry. Hope you can find the answers you need with a goole search.

Hi Softy,

I'm on Celexa and haven't had any of this (helps me wonderfully). -- Really persue this with your doc -- sometimes it takes a while for them to listen. (I had bad chillblain type symptoms on Lofepramine and it took me *ages* to convince my doc to let me change meds -- which funnily enough solved that problem straight away when he let me! Different meds for different folk!). You might find help on a site called www.remedyfind.com -- basically a med rating site with feedback from people who have used the meds.

I would have thought you wouldnt have problems with side effects after been on the celexa for so long but I could be wrong. I thought side effects went away in the beginning of starting an antidepressant.
Does your doctor have any ideas of what this could be?
Take care

I have been on Celexa for over two years with no problems. Did they check your thyroid?
