Celexa Addiction

Celexa Addiction

At Alternative to Meds Center’s drug rehab, we know that there are other solutions than being medicated on Celexa and developing issues with Celexa addiction or dependence.


We provide methods of Celexa addiction help that allow people to reduce their dependencies on this prescription drug. The side effects of this medication are in many cases much more than “side effects”, such as the serious problems that may develop from long-term use of this medication; tolerance, dependence, and Celexa withdrawal. Do you not feel the same effects from the dosage that was first prescribed, feel a need for an increased dosage, or experience symptoms of withdrawal without taking this medication? Any of these things can be signs of a developing or already established Celexa dependence. People are often given an antidepressant before there has been any investigation to find what might be the cause of their depression.

For many people, it is following a traumatic emotional event that they start taking this medication, and they many years later the individual is still taking the medication struggling with antidepressant addiction problems and challenging withdrawal problems if they try to stop taking it. Celexa, also known as Citalopram, is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), and one of the major issues with this class of drugs is that even if an individual isn’t deficient in Serotonin in the first place, this medication can actually create a Serotonin deficiency. This drug does not produce Serotonin, it blocks its reuptake. Serotonin is supposed for reuptake, in order for our nerve cell to reuse it. But when forced to stay in nerve space, Serotonin degrades, and then there is none left for the reuptake process.

This is a very similar process to how Cocaine abuse wastes all of a person’s Dopamine, and does not produce it. The Dopamine is our reward neurochemical, and when an individual takes cocaine for the first time, everything will be rewarding. However, at some point, their Dopamine will be entirely exhausted and nothing will hold a sense of reward or any value to them. Serotonin is the inhibitory component of our brain; it inhibits stimuli from the outside environment, creates the very important sleep neurohormones, and additionally decreases behaviors and thoughts of a compulsive nature. When an individual is withdrawing from a Citalopram addiction, over stimulation, sleeplessness, anxiety, and even symptoms similar to OCD and Tourette’s may appear. This is experienced because the individual now has a real Serotonin deficiency. Having Celexa addiction help can efficiently relieve the pain of withdrawal.

Many people may be scared of SSRI antidepressant addiction withdrawal symptoms, which can inhibit their decision to overcome Celexa dependence. However, antidepressant addiction can be effectively combated in Alternative to Meds Center’s addiction treatment program through employing targeted IV nutrients while the drug is being withdrawn, and administration of other oral nutrients created to actually produce Serotonin. This is done in combination with discovering why the individual was depressed originally, and can provide a lasting success consisting of being happy, medication free.
