How long does it take for 10mg celexa to get out of your system?
ive been on it for 2 weeks
Answers
This is a question that you should ask the doctor who prescribed this medication. The length of time may differ from the length of a period of time that you have been on this medication as well as the strength of the medication which you were taking.
I think it depends. I mean it depends on age, physical fitness, mental condition, mental strength, mental steadiness or mental stability. Patient to patient the duration may vary.
These agents will usually be out of your system in 24 hours, regardless of how long you have taking it. Withdrawal symptoms should be relatively minimal for you since you have been on it for only two weeks. To progress your body getting rid of it, drink plenty of clear fluids.
The half life is 1.5 days so in short, the answer is about 7 days. BUT, don't stop it abruptly! Not even after just 2 weeks. Talk to your doctor about stair stepping down.
