> > Celexa is making me "chatty" too ... and confrontational. But my Dr. thinks it's probably just a result of the depression being lifted, which makes sense to me. I just won't let people push me around (as much.) It could be worse, I suppose.
> What seems very eerie to me is that most AD's help with my depression but each seems to magnify one particular part of my personality. With Celexa I am that hypomanic person while on Zoloft I was real cool and chilled out :) Sometimes I feel like I have little or no control over my brain and that on or off drugs, I am a victim to my own chemistry. None of this matters as much as long as I am not in pain, can get out of bed, and drive from point A to point B without tears running down my face. At this stage of the game, I no longer expect to experience "normal", if there is such a thing.
I have been on paxil, prozac and now celexa. On paxil I experienced a few unpleasant side effects like weight gain so I go off. About 6 months later I start crying over everything. Another thing on Paxil if I was a couple hours late in taking my medicine My head would feel buzzy. I hate this feeling. Then I go on prozac which is good at first and then I became so negative. I didn't have any feelings of love or hate. Just nothing. I hated people. I go off and start taking celexa. I take it two months and start the negative thing again. I even hated being around my children most of the time. I have quit taking it for 5 days now and the buzzy feeling is back. Has anyone ever had this side effect . Please let me know.
