In brief: Celexa to Paxil (paroxetine)

Work with your doctor on Cross-titration instead of sudden switch.

In brief: Anti anxiety medicat

If you have discontinued Celexa or reduced the dose significantly your symptoms are recurring, as expected.
It will take some time before the effect of Paxil (paroxetine) s felt and my require dose adjustments.

In brief: Many psychiatrists

Recommend a cross titration in which Celexa is being reduced as the Paxil (paroxetine) is being increased.
This is done to prevent ssri discontinuation symptoms - but is not always seamless. As time goes on ; medications are titrated this should resolve. Take care.
