Ssri causing increased motor symptoms?

Recommended Posts

Greetings dr


My husband has taken celexa 20mg since feb 2012. He has started to have More freezing problems, slower etc, basically motor symptoms worsening. He saw the movement disorder specialist in July and regular neuro in Sept, and neither said anything about the celexa possibly causing the worsening motor symptoms.


I was doing reading again and read in up to date that Ssri can possibly worsen motor

Symptoms. Up to date was recommending Zoloft as the least likely one to not affect dopamine uptake.


I realize the complexity of not knowing if the pd is simply progressing or it's the meds.


Wondering what you have observed in your practice.


Thanks so much for you're assistance

It is very rare. In our practice we do not stop the Celexa,


We adjust the other medications around the Celexa.


It is likely not Celexa.
