Hi All. Long story short. I've been dealing with bad anxiety for many years. Ups and down. Different meds. This anxiety is back full force so I started this today. 10 mg for two weeks then 20. So far just dizziness but it's only been 1 hr. I'll keep ya posted. Cross our fingers
Welcome Lesley!! Give the medication time, it really will work. You may experience some uncomfortable side effects at first but they will subside. Of course, if they become unbearable contact the doctor. It can take upwards of a month for the medication to reach maximum effectiveness. Fingers crossed, lol.
Hi Lesley, I have been on celexa for about 6 years. I started at the usual
starting dose of 20 mgs. No problems and my depression lifted really soon.
Then another Dr. raised me to 40 mgs. and I felt like a zombie, As soon as
I tapered back down to 20 I felt myself again. I hope it works for you, too!
