Celexa causing Globus-feeling like pill stuck in my throat
BigFourAuditor posted:
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?
Thomas L Schwartz, MD responded:
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..
