It probably didn't trigger your TS. It was probably just supressing symptoms to a point where they were un noticable. Celexa is something they use to help alleviate the symptoms. so when you came off of it, they came back. They could have developed while you were on the Celexa. for a lot of people it just clicks. all of a sudden I started vocalizing one day, along with my usual lifetime twitching.
