I have been on 10mg of Celexa for a week. I feel drugged and spacey. Does it get better?
Hi Kingofblue: I empathized with you back when you posted that you were having problems with lexapro. I also had a lot of problems and side effects with it, as I had listed for you in that post. Now celexa, and a problem. I am so sorry! Here is a suggestion: Maybe starting out a little slower, like a dose of 5mg daily instead of 10mg. It might be easier on your system. The tablet has a line in the middle that can be scored and cut it in half. Just because a dose is called "therapeutic", it is not a "one size fits all" situation. Once your body accepts the smaller dose, you could consider going back up to the 10mg dose again. Fingers crossed, hope this one works out for you! Keep in touch and let us know how it's working and how you're feeling, OK?
