I have been taking Celexa 20mg for 7 weeks now. It has changed my life. No more anger, anxiety or depression which had plagued me for years. But this week has been stressful and I am having some break through anxiety. Has anyone else experienced this? Did it improve with time? Was your dosage increased?
From my experince with any med that has controlled my anxiety stress did make my anxiety return to haunt me. Friend that lives with me is on celexa and stress does the same to her. Talk to your prescribing doctor to see if s/he may adjust medicication.
I take celexa 40mg. I started at twenty, and it worked pretty good, but I still had my moments of meltdowns. It takes 4-6wks to get in your system so after 3 months my dr increased me to 40. It to me is the best antidepressent I have tried and I have tried a lot. 40mg made a big difference. Of course it did not take my probs away, but I handle stress much better now. I would ask dr. for increase to 40. Good luck!. Let me know how it works for ya, but I highly recommend celexa to everyone with anxiety and depression.
