after taking 10 mg of celexa once a night, i had a panic attack the other night. i didnt feel good and i was throwing up. next day i was fine but still had a worry feeling. and scared to eat certain things and scared to feel sick again. sometimes through out the day i feel sick then i get hot flashes and calm myself down soon goes away. my anxiety hasalways been a worry over dying or being sick. and sometimes i convince myself im sick or something is wrong with but really isnt. its hell. any help? maybe a bigger dose?
yeah i went to the doctors. he wants me to try and get through it. if i dont get better he will up the dose to 20 mg he said. he also said i probably was really sick and my anxiety just got triggered and i might just be
scared. well tonight i get home and depression hit. im not sure whats going on. i feel un easy. i feel awful.
ten mg is a pretty kmw dose. i think the average is 2o mg. you should be feeling better after the new dose kicks in. also try spending more time in the sun if you have any sun. light boxes for winter dep, sold online are good to use first thing in the morning. also cognitive behavioral therapy is good.
I agree. 10 mg is a very low dose. I was on 20mg to start with and something else completely for anxiety. I don't want to sound like I'm pushing more drugs on you, but I had to be increased to 40mg of Celexa and also slight increase in my anxiety med., because my life has been so stressful for the past few months. How long have you had this dr.? If he knows you well, he should know best. See him in person. If he still won't help, find a new dr.
well thank you all very much. it feels good to talk to others that understand. i called my doc today and he upped the dose to 20. he also set me up with a behavior person to talk to. so fingers crossed. i did get back into the gym today and did a full work out which helped. the depression is pretty much gone. comes and goes and its very little. i had that doctor for about three years now. hes the one who prescribed celexa to me. said it was a safe med with few side effects. he knows i cant handle side effects being my anxiety blows sickness ot of porportion. so i mean he knows me pretty well. just kind of weird that he rather see if i could fight it without being uped on my dose. but i am trying my hardest, eating healthy. drinking only water. gym now. start counsling tkmoroww. higher dose. and getting right with the lord. !
