Hi Stacey,

I started right on 40 mg every morning because I was on 30 mg of Paxil and the dr. wanted to avoid withdrawal symptoms from the Paxil, which I get badly if sudden changes occur in dosage. So far so good in the transition from Paxil to Celexa. I'm sadder and I get mad more easily, but I'm thinking it's because I haven't got the full Celexa level in me yet... I have been taking it now for 4 days. My PMS certainly wasn't as horrible as it usually is, so it must be working. My insomnia is harder to control though, and I am tired a lot. I've heard through here that the side effects wear off for some people but it can take a couple of months. I wonder, too, if 10 mg is too low a dose, and if you're tired all the time maybe take it at night, instead, if you're taking it in the a.m.? I'd chat with your doctor.
