Hi There,

I myself haven't taken Celexa, the best person to ask is always your doctors both PDOC and General Practioner as she/he is in tune with your body and drug interactions.  I my case I see an HIV specialist and certain medications aren't prescribed beacsue of possible side effects, drug interactions, but also other medical conditions.

I can say that the meds I take always leave me with dry mouth making me feel like I'm not drinking enough fluids when I am.  A remedy for that is chewing sugarless gum or if your not a gum chewer ask your pharmacist about an OTC product called "Oralbalance" the maker is BioTene.

Lastly always ask our good friend Google, but after checking with him or her, check with your doctors.

Good luck,

Thanks. I looked it up on my friend's computer. Kind of freaked me out because the list of side effects was so long. It's been two weeks. I feel more anxious, but at the same time kind of sleepy. It's not that bad though.

Things will get better on the medication, you just need to give your body time to adjust. If it has been a few months and none of your symptoms have improved then you should see someone. Antidepressants are not the cure all that they are sometimes made out to be. Mostly they are designed to improve physical symptoms of depression rather than the mental ones. I know that when I first started on Celexa it wasn't really making a difference instead I had added side effects such as nightmares, dry mouth, nausea and headaches. So after a two months I was switched to a higher dosage and that really helped me improve. Pros and cons of the medication should always be discussed with a health care professional and keeping it to yourself can be dangerous.

I was bumped up too. Now on 40mg and feeling better. It's almost hard to tell. its been really gradual. It is easier to be around my friends and my family now and its less hard to wake up. i have dry mouth too and my palms are sweaty. that feels weird, but it's not too bad. i can handle it.
