I just went to see my Dr and she put me on 10mg of Celexa daily. Plus I have the Xanax if I need them.
I took my first dose last night and 1 hr later I had a panic attack and had to take Xanax. Today I feel totally exhausted. I'm hoping that it won't be like this forever, or this is not the drug for me. She said nausea/diarrhea and fatigue are common side effects, but if I can stick it out, they should get better after a week or so.
Anyone had experience with this drug (or others like it)?? Did your side effects lessen after a bit?
i have taken xanax and celexa together. I assume you are NOT taking these while pregnant. They are a huge no-no. I had really good results with the Celexa. I felt like my brain was running on hyper drive and it slowed me down enough to think clearly, but gave me the energy to do whatever the day held and generally overall i felt happier. After about a week of the Celexa my panic attacks stopped and i didnt need the xanax anymore. The celexa did make me tired for a day or two but then it turned into pure energy for me. I hope it does good things for you, and if not your doc is willing to try something else.
I was on and off celexa as hailee grew up, then off for a couple yrs... now back on it for 6 mo or so along with seroquel at night.. it took a good 3 -4 mo for it to take full effect.. i feel much better.. i notice weight gain with it tho if i dont excersize or eat good.
