    Thats what the doctor called in to my pharmacy, but was wondering has anyone else done this like that?? wondering if thats safe, if to expect some sort of side effects or reactions??

    Just to stop celexa & start cymbalta, just like that?

    I love my doector, so im just wondering though.

    Thanks !

    Why not call the Pharmacy and ask? They are usually better informed about this kind of stuff than MD's are! And you'll get a quick answer.

    I never start a med unless I know why I'm starting it. I would call and ask why the switch.

    I went 20-40-60 with celexa and had no problems whatsoever. I'm presently using 80 and tolerate it just fine. God bless, Anne Theresa

    just quit taking the celexa, and start the 60mg of cymbalta right away...

    sound right to anyone else?
