> I started on celexa 20mg for a week -5 weeks ago and then to celexa 40mg for the last 4 weeks. Side affects are perspriring when I do practically anything, hard to sleep, feel lethargic most of time. I do have a spurt of energy now and then for maybe a half a day.
> My depression is better but I'm rarely comfortable with my thoughts. When I can't sleep, I have crummy thoughts -they just don't get me down as much.
> I have been messing with ads for 15 yrs and this is almost too tough. I see my dr tomorrow -maybe I should try 20mg celexa a day instead of 40.
> Any encouraging words out there or any other kind for that matter?


The main thing I can offer is that this list exists! I know that, for me anyhow, the past 30 minutes I've spent reading these postings are the happiest 30 min I've had in awhile. Thank you so much, all of you, for existing and for being so very kind. You give me hope!!

As for the Celexa, I've been taking it for almost 2 months (1st wk at 20mg/day). I was not doing well before. (What an understatement…) So, what I noticed first thing was that I could contemplate going out of my place, answering the phone, etc. I don't know if I had early side effects, because all I was aware of was that things were better. However, in the past week, I've been able to keep track, and I noticed I'm sleeping, at most, 4 hours a night. Usually much less. I'm not lethargic, but I sweat constantly, and I've started having leg cramps at night. Otherwise, life (thoughts, energy, tomorrow) seems much improved. I've taken ADs for ~6 yrs.

Peace, and stay safe,
