I have felt great since I started taking Celexa and dexadrine 5 weeks ago. I am take 20mg Celexa in morning, plus 20 mg dexadrine (for ADHD)in morning, and 10 mg. dexadrine at noon. I have also been exercising an average of 5 times per week, which seems to contribute to my feeling of well-being. My sex drive dropped almost immediately, but it has increased somewhat over the past two weeks. Even when the will is there, it takes much longer to achieve orgasm, but that is improving, too. I used to have a fairly high sex drive, averaging about 5-6 times per week, but now it is difficult to achieve orgasm more than 2-3 times per week. That ability is improving, but I still can't seem to maintain an erection while using a condom. I have not had any sleep problems. I don't really have dry mouth, but I do need to drink more water, although that is improving, too. I don't have any nausea, but my appetite has diminished (to a healthier level!) and have lost interest in junk food. So far the side effects of Celexa have been far fewer than with Prozac.
