Re: Has anyone switched from Paxil to Celexa? Patson

Yes, that was the switch I made - from Paxil to Celexa. Unfortunately for your Mom, I didn't really have troublesome side effects from Paxil except for a little too much nervous tension. I switched due to the very short half-life of Paxil. If I was late taking it (I normally took it first thing in the morning), or worse yet, ever ran out, I went through hell. I'd get withdrawal (discontinuation) symptoms that made me extremely ill. Celexa has a long half-life (no withdrawal problems with a late or missed dose), & I think too, an improvement in mood.

My doctor switched me directly from Paxil to Celexa with no problems at all.
