I still have anxiety in the mornings and have to take a .5 Xanax to get me through, how long does it take for Celexa to stop the anxiety in the mornings. I have dry mouth and headache so far with side affects. But in the mornings my heart beats fast and I can feel pin type needle feelings in my lower arms like tremors. I have been on this a long time ago and it was great. But forgot about how long it takes to work. I am taking it at night since I sleep ok on it.
Cjene; As Janie has said to get the blood level it can take 4 weeks but because your doctor just increases the dose of the Citalopram you should start to feel better as far as the starting the medication in a week or so. This is very common this is why the doctor gave you Xanax to help in the morning. Normally it takes 7 to 10 days to get through these side effect that comes with the medication and at times those problems even increase during that time period but you should start to feel relief very soon. Just use the Xanax as directed and soon you will start to feel better. remember it is best to take this medication at the same time each day and don't miss any doses. that helps keep the blood level even also.
