Hi, some of the side effects listed for Celexa are; restlessness/inability to sit still, worsening agitation, irritability and trouble sleeping. So it's not unheard of for you to react this way since starting it. I would advise you to discuss these side effects with your doctor and weigh up the pro's and con's of continuing with Celexa...

I feel for you... I know some meds can cause you to be antsy; however, RLS I have read may be inherited. My sister and my dad have it... I have had it for about 10 years now... I was on clonazepam for a while and it helped... since I have been getting older and gone through a hysterectomy it got real bad and had to change meds to Requip (Ropinirole.) 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. I have questions about if this could lead into Parkinson's??? I notice if I eat or drink anything with artificial sweeteners it activates my RLS earlier in the day. 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...
