I've been on Celexa for 6 mos.(40mg for 2 weeks then reduced to 20mg.) I had the surreal, dreamy, foggy feeling for about 2 or 3 weeks. After that I felt great. I haven't had any other side effects other than the inability to achieve orgasm but that went away after about a month and a half. Things were fine until about 6 weeks ago. Now I have a mild case of apathy. I don't really care about anything. I can still have fun and don't really feel depressed, but my overall attitude is "Whatever". I mostly just roll my eyes at people's problems when I should probably feel a little compassion. (Could just be my personality!)Mostly I think it's just BOREDOM. I try to stay busy, but getting motivated is difficult. I don't know if it is related to the Celexa or not, but I have gained 5 pounds in the last 6 weeks. I don't think my diet has changed that much, but I have begun to watch what I eat a little closer. Does anyone know if you can reach a plateau on this med. I don't really want to increase the dosage since the side effects are so minimal right now. Also I take synthroid for thyroid disorder and a mult-vitamin. Does anyone know of drug interactions with these?

thanks for listening, CJ
