> I have been on Celexa for about 2 weeks and still feel anxious, also. My side effects are slowly going away that seemed so severe at first. I'd like to know if the anxiety is from something else or the meds.

This is Jak. I've always been told by my doc and heard elsewhere that anxiety is separate and distinct from depression, so they are 2 different diagnoses. So your anxiety may have nothing to do with Celexa. You can have depression and anxiety at the same time, which is quite common. I've been really anxious lately, too, and on 12/21 my doc started me on BuSpar, which is a nonhabit-forming anti-anxiety med. It can take about 7-10 days before you feel better and you get the full effects in 3-4 weeks, just like with the anti-depressants. BuSpar is non-sedating, so it's unlike Valium or Xanax, which are really not good for you because in the long run you can become addicted to them and have horrible withdrawal symptoms if you try to abruptly stop. BuSpar doesn't do this. Check out BuSpar's website: It's really informative.
