Rash from antidepressant

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are all doing better!!

I wanted to ask you guys if you ever experienced a rash from taking antidepressants? I get rashes every time I start taking them, like on my arms, stomach and back…nothing I can’t deal with, but I just want to know it’s safe to keep taking them.
So far I’ve been on Effexor, Paxil and now I’m on Celexa.

Let me know.


I got it on nortryptiline which I tried ages ago, for 3 weeks, the rash and sweating was so bad I stopped.

Some people do have reactions to their meds like this and it is recommended that you see your doctor when it occurs to make sure it is ok to stay on the med. You don’t want it to get worse. If not a big deal, the doc can prescribe an ointment to help with it.


It’s a little better now but not completely. I’m going to wait an other week until I can make a decision stay on Celexa or not.
Thanks for responding.
