I am currently taking Celexa which has stopped working for sometime now, in fact probably for a couple of years. I'm so housebound and never want to do anything anymore and I used to be an avid hiker as I live in a beautiful mountain community but I haven't hiked in over 6 yrs, I need help badly. Would love to hear some feedback from some of you...
Hi, Celexa worked for me when I took it when I was much younger. Now I've been taking it for a month & realize that it is not doing anything... no motivation. I was taking 10 mg then 20 mg & it made no difference. What is your dose? Some people say that it works at 40 mg but I never tried that. I tried Bupropion SR 150 for 2 wks & was getting worse, but I really should of given it at least a month to know if it would help. To be honest I also wanted to have a glass of wine which should not be done w/Wellbutrin. Since everyone is different you could give Wellbutrin a try. A lot of people have success on it. Sometimes a low dose of WB is given w/a low dose of Celexa. I know how you feel bc I was once also very active & don't do much now. You are not alone.
Hi Hiker: I am taking wellbutrin sr 150mg twice a day, as the xl version kept me awake at night. As to the comment of drinking alcohol while taking it, I used to drink socially, with my doctor's knowledge, and she said it was ok in moderation. As a matter of fact, Wellbutrin is the antidepressant that I have had the most success and relief with, and it has had the least amount of side effects for me. It's a good antidepressant for motivation. I was like you at one time, housebound and not enjoying the things I used to love to do. But last week I went to a wedding, and yesterday I helped a friend clean her house. It has been a very helpful medication for me. It's definitely worth a try! "G"
