> > Keep on trying. I had to take my celexa at night because I was so tired. I also sweat a ridiculous amount, especially my feet, for the first eight weeks I was on it. You will find that it takes anywhere from 6-8 weeks to kick in and then one day you realize this is better! You also find that most of the awful side effects are greatly diminished.

> Last night I took my pill before bed. Seemed to help but the onset of a headache was immediate. Now that you mention it my feel fell kinda wet. (laugh) Not so much fog today but the munchies are horrible. Did you put on any weight? Also I read about decreasing sexual interest? I know that is personal but do you know anything about that part of it?

I'm going to take my second dose at bedtime to see if I will sleep through the worst of the side effects. I'm not entirely sure this is the answer but I'm commited to hanging in there!!

I've been taking Celexa since Dec. I never had any side effects and am taking 40 mgs. I was always angry... ready to fight..always had to marriage was too in jeopardy..I am a much happier, calmer individual. I am also taking buspar. Along with all of this I am see a pyschologist. I do not believe in meds. without taking out problems. hang in there.. it is certainly worth the it.
