I have had severe anxiety for the past 18 days... this is my 10 day on celexa ... how much longer intil I could feel the effect cause I have had an increase in anxiety and feeling a bit depressed and just want to lay down in bed
To feel the effects of any mental health medication it takes at least 2-3 weeks. I've even had some that have taken closer to a month. It's very discouraging, but try and hang in there it will "kick in". If you don't notice a difference in a month I'd talk to your doctor and see if there's a problem with the dose, or the medication itself and your system. Not all medications of this nature work the same for everyone who takes them.
