Im not sure if this drug will be more like a stimulant or calming?also how is it you gain weight? Water weight or more hungry? Can you take this with xanax? What about alcohol?
I have been on Xanax for a long time (7 yrs) and at one point we (my doc & I) tried Celexa. As you know, alcohol is not advised with Xanax because it enhances the drug, possibly to the point of overdose. I tried the Celexa, mainly so I would not be so restricted in what I drank or other meds I could take. The only problem was, on Celexa I didn't feel any different, could not tell I had taken anything at all. My anxiety went thru the roof. It didn't work for me, with or with out alcohol. Could have been because I am on so many other meds or just didn't work for me. Doesn't mean it can't work for you. However, any drug that has a sedating effect, (or supposed to) it is recommended NO alcohol. Personally I found no difference, but you have to take into account other drugs you are taking. My doc says i should take one or the other, not at same time. I only took it 4 months, trying to give it a chance to work, and did notice an increase in appetite. Good Luck!!
