Stopping Celexa for the Second Time

My son take lamictal and celexa for anxiety and OCD. We were giving him 20 mg and his personality because to change so then we lowered it to 10mg. Today I asked him if he thought he was doing weird things because of the medicine and he agreed. The doctor told us we could stop it if this activation occurred again. Now we have to deal with his behavior coming off of the celexa. I guess the doctor will have to figure out what other medication will work well with lamictal to help control his anger. Very concerned about getting him through the last couple of weeks of school.

Has anyone had the same kind of problems with SSRI's. I believe after trying three different ones from this category that my son can not tolerate this medication and it doesn't metabolize right in his body.
