Celexa (citalopram): Bruce, you could stop the medication probably without any side effects. However, there must be a reason you and your doctor decided to start on this medication and I doubt it went away by now. Please call your doctor on tuesday and seek a different mode of treatment whether it be medication or therapy. You need something to make you feel like yourself again, don't suffer needlessly.
