I've been taking it for 4 weeks. I've also been taking levothyroxyn for a few months and recently started celexa for my anxiety and depression. I've just started feeling antsy and agitated, it bugs me to stay still especially when I sleep. Cause?

Hi, some of the side effects listed for Celexa are; restlessness/inability to sit still, worsening agitation, irritability and trouble sleeping.

I have been able to sleep better... I started on 1mg and up to 2mg... I take thyroid meds too, but I have been taking that since I was 12 years old and I am 47 years old.

Also with this, my anxiety pumps up bad... I hope this helped some... Anything that can mess with the neurological of the body life food, coffee, diet aides.. I would avoid them at all costs... I also read that if you have RLS it tends to get worse as you age...
