I had tried most of the SSRIs and every "natural" product for my depression and anxiety and never had any real success until I started on Celexa. It took about 4 weeks of slow but steady improvement before I leveled out. After 7 weeks I was feeling great but I was unable to concentrate on work or anything else. Instead of increasing my dosage or adding a new drug, my Dr. suggested cutting my dosage from 20 mgs to 10 mgs. After 2 days, the fog completely lifted and I feel wonderful.I take my dosage in the morning and only occasionally get a little droopy in the afternoon.Maybe a 10% decrease in libido and it takes about twice as long to finish sex as before.Only other problem was incessant yawning during the first week, Otherwise no problems.
Another thing i did was cut caffiene completely out of my diet and the headaches i used to get on SSRIs have went away. I had horrible withdrawals for a week before I could wean myself off caffiene but it has been well worth it. Anyway good luck to everyone and if you have a question, let me know.
