I've been in a double depressed episode for about 4.5 months and have been on celexa for about 3.5 months(10mg for 2 months & 20mg for the rest) After it reached full strength it worked wonderfully, it did more than I expected, I was back to my usual Dysthymic state, but recently(the past few weeks) it seems the celexa has stopped working and I feel even worse then before I started it. My question is if this can happen taking celexa?
Celexa 20 mg only worked for me when I had mild depression. I want to switch to wellbutrin (hair loss is a possible side effect) but I'm already having hair loss from klonopin (rare side effect) & I'm worried about the seizure risk. I think that Zoloft didn't cause the stomach upset for me that the celexa caused but the Zoloft is probably tooo chemically similar to celexa to help. I'm triple depressed and only use the klonopin to sleep, but I also need a diff anti-depressant.
