Hi, I'm a 24 year old male. My GP recently prescribed me Celexa for anxiety and stress 2 weeks ago. But now I'm experiencing what I think is Globus. I have the feeling of trapped air in my throat and general irritation. Almost like a pill is stuck in my throat. Is the Celexa increasing my anxiety levels, which is causing Globus?

Could be. Consider asking for the next closest med to celexa called lexapro. It is a bit more refined and may not have same side effects.. If it happens twice, maybe ask your doc about a different antidepressant family of meds..
