I am so sorry to hear about your son's problems. SSRI's are actually are not indicated for use with children and teens, but happen to be the most widely prescribed psychiatric medication for this population. No good research has supported their use with kids. Anyway, I have been trying to get off of Celexa for about 3 - 4 weeks and headaches, dizziness and the shakes have been problems. Unlike your son, I didn't have headache while I was on the medication. I am trying wean off slowly. I am on 10mg Celexa every other day. I have had withdrawal symptoms on the off days, but they have been milder than when I tried to go cold turkey. I'm not sure if I will successfully get off, but am hoping too. I certainly hope that things work out for your son. He's way too-young to have to be going through this type of medical crisis.

Take care
