What are the side effects of Celexa?

I was on Celexa for years and got off of it. I got back on about 3 months ago. In November, I had a flu shot. Two days later, I developed left side temporary paralysis and prolonged weakness, movement disorder, and now hypothyroidism. Could that be related to the celexa? Thank you!

thank you for asking through HCM..

celexa has its side effect but it not include paralysis and hypothyroidism.

though celexa is acting on nervous system, its effect doesnot cause paralysis.

viral infection is common cause of this type of temporary paralysis and hypothyroidism. and prolonged weakness is due to nerve paralysis.

its not due to celexa.
