I started taking celexa after dealing with major anxiety for years. my doctor told me to give it a few weeks to a month to begin feeling better but i could tell a difference in two weeks it has helped me out alot in social situations and just all around parts of my life. I had the sleepiness at first like most others, but got over that. my only problem is i have gained alot of weight and it contiunes i eat right and exercise a little but i just keep gaining i was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. i talked to a few people at the doctors office(other patients) and they said they had heard of it making you retain water. If any one can has any input on this i would really appreciate your comments... ty
