When I took Paxil I felt like dancing on the top of a bar somewhere. I was so wired. Am having similiar reaction to Celexia which I have been on for about 2 months now, 20 mg. I get into the most intense animated and chatty moods. On Zolft, I was so mellowed out and I loved that. It was as though I had backed away from the world but with Celexa, it is as if the world is up against my face and I want to continually confront and challenge it. I would have stayed on the Zoloft but it caused very bad muscle/joint pain which went away once I went off of it. I sometimes consider going off meds altogether but don't anymore because I inevitable sink into a severe depression within weeks. Just got to keeping fighting this horrible illness the best I can until I can't any longer.
