> I take 40 mgs of celexa, 30 mgs. of Buspar and tiny dose of remeron for sleep at night. I have been on celexa since 5/25/99. I don't think it is helping too much. I still have depressive symptoms (don't want to do stuff, don't want to talk to people, nothing is fun, I don't laugh, low self-esteem, etc.) I never have really thought "hey, this is helping" so.. Has anyone ever taken 60 mgs? I have a real consistent low-grade depression that feels like someone put a heavy robe over me and it is too hard to lift. I have tried prozac (o.k.,but really wasn't doing much at 40 mgs). I am going through a tough time in my life (2.5 years sober and just ended a long-term relationship, but these are actually positive things!!) So... I'd love some input. Zoloft?? Wait longer for celexa?? Maybe I am not trying hard enough (but that is a big symptom of my depression-I am a successful person, really. When I get into the depressed mode I think I am not trying enough) I want to laugh and have some joy-it's like there is no joy. HELP-- P.S. I have tried naltrexone and am not sure if it does a thing.

Hi RG-

I have been on Celexa for close to 2 months now and have done alot of research and have heard repeatedly that 40 mg is the working point. My understanding is increase 10 mgs at a time. I take 30 and it has been god sent. Life is so much better for me (not perfect yet so much better). Hope you get what you need.
