4 weeks on 20mg of celexa (citalopram) and 0.5 mg of clonazepam daily. developed tinnitus  after 1 week. I stopped taking the celexa (citalopram) how long til out of system ?

About 8 days: Celexa (citalopram) has a half-life of 37 hours. In general, it requires five half-lives for a medication to be out of your system. Therefore, it should take about 8 days for the Celexa (citalopram) to be out of your system. Discontinuing a SSRI, like Celexa (citalopram), can result in serious problems and should be done under physician supervision. ...Read more

I have tinnitus is Paxil (paroxetine) of Zoloft safer i am coming off of citalapram, it made my tinnitus worse,I am afraid of new drugs, I once had viral vertigo, ?

I have tinnitus is Paxil (paroxetine) of Zoloft safer i am coming off of citalapram, it made my tinnitus worse,I am afraid of new drugs, I once had viral vertigo, ?

Good question: Citalopram made your tinnitus worse. I understand this. You have been offered two other medications. You are fearful of new drugs. Not knowing the exact mechanism that lead to the worsening of the tinnitus with Citalopram makes it difficult to predict how you will respond to either of the replacement meds. My approach then would be to target the tinnitus. You need to discuss this with your doctor ...Read more

What occurs if you take 4x20mg and 3x10mg of citalopram?

What occurs if you take 4x20mg and 3x10mg of citalopram?

Depends: I assume you are meaning to alternate days so you are effectively taking less of the med equivalent to about 15mg. It depends on what your effective dose is. You might dip below a therapeutic dose and have symptoms return. If the reduction is due to side effects, consider a switch to Lexapro (escitalopram) which is more potent and side effects may be less. ...Read more

I missed 4 doses of celexa (citalopram). Am i ok?

I missed 4 doses of celexa (citalopram). Am i ok?

Are you ok?: By missing 4 doses, that typically mean you did not take it for 4 days. How do you feel? If this the beginning of treatment this will affect you more than if you have been taking the Celexa (citalopram) for quite a while. I would guess 4 days is about as many as you can miss and not notice much difference; after that i would bet you might not feel so ok any more. Best to take every day! ...Read more
