> I was just reading some of your posts about trying to go off Celexa. I had been off of it successfully for about 6 weeks but I have started to get really depressed again. The past couple days have been bad and last night I was starting to feel "the slip" and I got really scared and started back on. When I stopped Celexa before I had about 4 weeks of dizziness and spaciness. On Celexa I am somewhat numb and have trouble getting things done and remembering things but at least I'm not depressed. I've been crying for a couple days now because I feel so hopeless. I don't want to alter who I am as a person but I am so afraid of feeling so bad. I am only 26 years old and I worry-do I have 40, 50 even 60 more years of feeling like this? I don't think I can do this to myself or the people who care about me.
> When I took a pill again last night I had instant dry mouth, dizziness and extreme feelings of loss of control of my life. It was bad. I am so torn.
> Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi Jenny-

Hope today is better for you. Remember Celexa takes several weeks to settle into your system. I have been on for 6 weeks now and I am feeling good. The cloudy head is gone and I'm able to function much better. I am on 20 a day. Talk to your Dr about how you feel and perhaps he can change your prescription. I am learning that pills alone do not solve the problem. I need counseling to go along with it. Then I hope to quit but not until then. Email me anytime.
