side effects of celexa

Posted by jem on May 16, 1999, at 1:01:37

I took prozac for one month and hated it. I had
insomnia so bad I couldnt work. My doctor put me on
20mg of celexa. I was tired all of the time. I didnt
go anywhere or do anything. It helped my depression
but also made me very apathetic. I would go to work
but just shuffle papers. I wasnt getting anything
done. I felt like my clothes were getting tigher,
but I didnt worry about it. I was really doing nothing
but sleeping. Boy was I shocked when I went to the
Dr. for my annual check up. I had gained over 20
pounds in 6 weeks. I made a decision to go off of
it immediately. I had to work and lose the weight.
I have a friend who is on it. She is afraid to go off
of it. She has been overweight for years but recently
started losing weight. But after 2 months of celexa
she has gained the lost weight plus more. She is not
getting anything done, she just sits around and does
nothing. She is not sleepy like I was. But she
is constantly eating, I think without realizing it.
ANd she doesnt seem to be able to do anything about it
or anything.
