Greetings & Happy Holidays!

Sheryl, I also switched to night dosing with good results. Less sleepiness. Still some grogginess, but less sleepiness. Also I can report that my headaches, which were SEVERE with prozac, have mostly gone away. The only symptoms i have now are actually less of symptoms and more of a lack of effect!! Does that make sense?

I'm on 50mg daily now, but the depression is creeping back. I'm also having blowups and anger more out of control the last few weeks. If prozac didn't have so many bad effects, I would switch back in a heartbeat.

Does anyone have ANY info on mixing SSRI'S? My doc is very conservative, but I would like something that maybe gives a kick in the pants to the Celexa. What about social anxiety...are any SSRI's better than others, or is this still a gray area?

Thank you again, as always. Take care,

I was also feeling so sleepy I could just put my head on my desk and sleep at a minute's notice. I switched to taking it before I go to bed and have found that I am sleeping more soundly. I had been taking it in the morning. It has not solved the overall fatigue and Wellbutrin has now been added to try to combat that, but the sleepiness (different from fatigue) does seem to be better. And I am in a better mood although I, too, don't care enough to try to be careful about diet. Nice to know I'm not alone. Hope we find solutions soon!
> Hi, since I last wrote I had to go off of the Celexa because I had a very scarey side effect last Saturday. It was an anxiety attack, could not breathe, and felt like I was burning up inside from head to toe. I had to call the doctor at 12:30 am to make sure I was not dying, which it seemed like.
