I am on 10 mg Celexa to start (doctor said start at 20mg but nurse and pharmacist said start with 10mg). I want to switch from morning to night time. Can I just skip my morning today and take tonight? Should I start 20 mg tonight? I am on day 6. I feel awful - just horrible anxiety. I was on Celexa for 5 years and did great - I have been off for three years and unfortunately started to have severe daily anxiety and panic attacks again.

Hi, Lisa! You can take your morning dose and then an evening dose if at least 8 hours elapse between the two doses.
Increased anxiety is a common side effect when starting an antidepressant/anxiolytic:
"Common (1% to 10%): Abnormal dreams, aggravated depression, agitation, increased anxiety, impaired concentration, nervousness"
How long have you been on the Celexa? You may want to stay on the 10mg dosage for a week or two to give your metabolism time to adjust to the medication.
