Hi, Dana. I have been on Celexa (40 mg) for about three weeks now.
I have noticed just a slight increase in anxiety, but this may
have also been due to the fact that I had just had my dosage of
Lamictal upped. Since I came back down on the dosage (75 mg), I
have seen a noticeable decrease in my anxiety. My sleep is still
ok, although it sometimes takes me a little longer to fall asleep
than usual. I am also on Remeron and, in fact, have just had my
dosage increased to 60 mg. Even at 45 mg, I never felt tired or
sleepy. The weight gain is definitely a problem, but I reason
that I would rather feel good with some extra weight than be
miserable and thin. When my depression first started, I wasted
away to almost nothing because of the anxiety and agitation!
I have noticed that it is easier for me to get and maintain
an erection and have experienced more interest in sex, but I also
stopped taking Luvox. Now, I'm just hoping this pharmo-cocktail
will do the trick. My doc and I have been working at this damn
depression for about a year now! Good luck.
