I'm going to be taking my first dose of Celexa tonight a 5mg I'm absolutely terrified and would like to know if anybody else has been in my situation and have had no increased anxiety
From the literature:
"Common (1% to 10%): Abnormal dreams, aggravated depression, agitation, anxiety."
Although increased anxiety can be a side effect you can see from the above that over 90% of users do NOT have this side effect.
Try not to worry and dwell on it or you'll just work yourself up into having problems. If you're sure you will, you most likely will. Try to just be positive and think about how good you'll feel when your medication takes effect.
Best regards, Wildcat
P.S. 20mg is the standard initial dose so you'll be starting with just a tiny dose.
