> Hi Jenny! I have been on Celexa since Feb. 23, and had never taken an anti-depressent before. Should have done this MANY years ago, but I can't worry about the past! Anyway, I'm glad you're noticing good effects. I still have some fatigue and grogginess, and was hoping it would go away by now. But it's kinda weird, because if I get up and move (i.e. when I work out) I don't notice any tiredness. It's just when I'm sitting around watching TV, or at work when it's quiet, that I start to feel really tired. I work out alot with weights and lots of cardio work, and I ride horses. And I have noticed that I sweat alot more than I used to! And yes, I yawn alot! But I'd rather feel tired than depressed. I have had good results from Celexa, and am only on 20 mg. When do you take your pill? I take it with dinner, which I eat late in the evening. And by the way, I have NOT gained weight -- have actually lost a few pounds! Good luck to you! Your life will only get better!

Thank you very much for the encouragement Mare! The yawning is almost ridiculous, isn't it? Today was a little better for me. The last few days I have been taking my pill around 6pm..this gives me enough time to get over the initial uplift when I take it and I tend to sleep really well. I have been a little less tired in the afternoon. I am most groggy when driving(people should be warned about this!) and as you mentioned, when I am just sitting around at work or home. I have also noticed I sweat more when I work out or run. I feel so much better mentally though. I'm starting to wonder, is this what it feels like to be normal? Do normal people smile for no reason? I have such an optimistic outlook about my life now. I wish I would have sought medication sooner. I agree with you-dealing with being tired is better than dealing with being depressed. Thanks again.
