    Default Stinging and flushing on Celexa

    Hi everyone.
    I'm currently taking Celexa 20mg every morning for warm room flushing (post accutane induced/probably neurogenic rosacea).

    I'm on the eighth day and since the fourth or fifth i'm felling a really weird stinging on the cheeks followed by flushing, mostly when i'm lying down (even with a fan) and I wake up early in the morning with the same symptoms.

    I wonder if it's a normal side effect of the first few weeks or if I should leave and go to another SSRI.
    I have not had good results with Mirtazapine too (2 months~30mg/tried 15 too), Effexor in the past helped me a bit.

    Thanks in advance.

    You may want to scroll through this list and ask your physician about any of these that have been proposed for flushing avoidance.

    Thanks, I'm already on Propranolol and Clonidine too.
    Currently continuing with celexa as well, face feels more cool to touch generally but the laying down flushs still happens sometimes.
