Why should you tell your doctor about bruising if on celexa (citalopram)?

Why should you tell your doctor about bruising if  on celexa (citalopram)?

Bruising: You should tell your doctor about any increased bruising because all ssri's (like celexa) can decrease the stickiness of platelets . . . Potentially leading to bleeding and bruises. Dosage may need adjusting. One of my patients developed tiny bruises called "petechiae" after she decided to add a baby aspirin/day to her prozac (fluoxetine). Just a tiny change like that can make a difference. ...Read more

Can celexa (citalopram) cause spotting after miscarriage?

Can celexa (citalopram) cause spotting after miscarriage?

Likely not celexa (citalopram): Antidepressants like Celexa (citalopram) can affect platelet function (and thereby increase risk of bleeding), but this is very rarely of any clinical significance. It is much more likely to be a result of the miscarriage itself than the medication. But, of course, if you are concerned, you should call your ob-gyn. ...Read more

Why does celexa (citalopram) cause weight gain? I take 60mg and have not been eating any more than usual and keep gaining weight

Why does celexa (citalopram) cause weight gain? I take 60mg and have not been eating any more than usual and keep gaining weight

It's complicated: Celexa is actually more weight-neutral than other antidepressants like tricyclics, paxil, (paroxetine) or remeron. People vary in their responses, with some losing weight on it and others gaining. Weight gain on antidepressants may be connected with affinity for histamine receptors, as this increases hypothalamic amp kinase which stimulates orexin, an appetite-inducing hormone. http://tinyurl.com/kk53lup. ...Read more

What conditions would cause constant body tremors? Normal MRI in feb 2013. On celexa (citalopram) 20mg for a month now and tremors are still the same...

Some considerations: Some folks suffer from heredofamilial tremors, or essential tremors, others may experience thyroid problems, anemias can seemingly cause tremors on occasion, and anxiety can cause tremors, amongst a number of problems. In my experience, it is very rare to experience tremor control with celexa (citalopram). If this remains a substantial problem, might try to see a neurologist. ...Read more

Was on celexa for 13 years. Titrated to Prozac (fluoxetine) but caused bad side effects. Can i go back to celexa and be normal again or will it not work the same?

Data not available: The only ssri for which we have such data is prozac (fluoxetine). If a person has been on Prozac (fluoxetine) and it failed to work and they stopped it, then there was a 90% chance of it working when it was readministered. That type of data are not available for celexa. Having said that however i suspect that it is likely the same case for the other ssri's based on my clinical experience. Best wishes. ...Read more
