Problems With Celexa
As with many other medications, Celexa® (citalopram hydrobromide) can cause problems. Some of the most common problems with Celexa include:
- Dry mouth
- Increased sweating
- Shakiness (tremor)
- Ejaculation problems.
If side effects do occur, they tend to be minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. However, there are some potentially serious problems with Celexa that require immediate medical attention. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience problems such as hallucinations, difficulty breathing or swallowing, or a fast heart rate.
Other Celexa warnings and precautions apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies (including allergies to foods, dyes, or preservatives). Also, you may not be able to take Celexa if you have certain medical conditions, such as epilepsy.
