You need to give your Dr. a call right away and tell her or him what's going on. They know meds work differently on everyone. Take care...Ed

Re:Celexa....... any advice or experiance? 6 Years, 7 Months ago  
I have been on Celexa for almost a year and I will tell you when I started on it, it instantly helped with depression and I started to feel great and when I upped to the 20mg that I was told I started to feel worse and have more anxiety because it made me dizzy and almost took away my ability to cry/sweat etc anything with bodily fluid! I talked to my Dr and we went back to the 10mg and I felt great again and now I only take 5mg and I take it at night as I can sleep through any side effects. I am on a very small dose but do find it helps even if it is a placebo effect that I am experiencing

Re:Celexa....... any advice or experiance? 6 Years, 2 Months ago  
::::UPDATE:::::::


I have been on celexa now since about january 5th... i lowered my dose to 10 mg from 20mg about 2 months ago... i am considering coming off of this medicine all together due to the weight gain i have experienced from this ... last year i was able to lose 30 pounds and felt in great shape, meanwhile in the last few months of taking this medicine i have put it all back on plus some... im not sure that the medicine itself puts weight on .. but my appetite has been through the roof on it.... example.. just the other day i ate TWO footlong subs from subway and was still hungry after...... any thoughts? its almost impossible for me to limit what i eat because i still feel hungry... also has anyone taken this and stopped and noticed weight loss????

I am also on Celexa and have actually had weight loss since starting it. I have virtually no appetite and have to force myself to eat. My therapist is not too concerned as long as it does not go to an extreme. Perhaps see if a different one would work. I had good results maintaining my weight while on Cymbalta.

Re:Celexa....... any advice or experiance? 6 Years, 1 Month ago  
I just started on Celexa - was on 10mg the past month and I was in the same boat. No appetite and having to force myself to eat. I can't even eat ice cream anymore as it makes me feel yucky... Upped the dosage to 20mg today. Going to see how things go from here - if the non-appetite continues after a couple more weeks, I'll get the Dr. to try something else (although everyone else in the family seems to have had great results from the Celexa).

The plus side is that going from 5mg to 10mg has gotten me down to the 1 panic attack every other day or so, so hopefully the 20mg will almost eliminate them (or perhaps 30-40mg)....

Re:Celexa....... any advice or experiance? 5 Years, 4 Months ago  
I recently started celexa. I had been med free for a few months earlier this year but things got sketchy and decided to go back on meds to get things straight.

Anyway .. I have unfortunately experienced some gnarly side effects. Mostly the delightful foggy/haze feeling in the brain. And I'm tired almost all the time. Its slowly getting better. All I can say is stick with it. It needs to find its way into your system. Give it a week or two ... maybe 10mg was ideal for you. I started on 20 but I hated how I felt. Backed off for a few weeks. Felt like poop so I started the meds again. My doc says stick with it for a few weeks.

Hang in there and let it get in your system. Don't jump the gun with these meds, everybodys system is different
