    Headache relief while taking Celexa

    chadp65 posted:
    I've been on Celexa for 4 months. Yesterday started experiencing throbbing headache and some joint pain and it's still a problem this morning (14 hrs later). It's not the first headache in four months, but the first time it's lasted so long. Probably just tension, but the drug interaction for Celexa says not to use ibuprofen, aspirin or any other pain reliever I have in the house. Any suggestions for headache remedy that can safely be taken with Celexa?
    Thanks
