> I just finished my first week on Celexa. I titrated my own dose slowly, increasing to one 20 mg. pill per day. (I had early and severe side effects when I tried Zoloft, probably because my doctor started me on a high dose). Initially, I felt a faint twinge of nausea with Celexa, but it passed very quickly. I will keep increasing my dose to the standard 40mg/day within the next month. It's taking longer to get a response this way, but it is minimizing any side effects I may
have encountered and therefore I am more likely to stick with it.

I think you're wise, titrating to the recommended dosage very slowly. I think it's so wise, because that's exactly the way I do it. And I pride myself on always being the one who does things the right way. HA HA HA HA

You'll have to forgive me I keep getting these wild upward manic swings. So, I guess that I think myself funny. I'm taking 80mgs/day Celexa, 450mgs/day Wellbutrin and 600mgs/day Seroquel. I'm happy that I have upward turns in my mood. For so long, I've been suicidally depressed.

The Best Of Luck In This New Year,
