Hey, I am new here, but just started Celexa a little more than a month ago. At first I tried it for a month, and then my dr switched me to Paxil to try, b/c I had horrible Insomnia with the Celexa. Paxil was horrible, so back to Celexa I went. Now I am so tired all the time, i cant figure it out. Do you think I should increas dosage or decrease? I dont think i want to decrease, but i am afraid to decrease too for worse side effects. But I would rather have insomnia than be sleepy all the time! The sexual side effects I have not noticed, b/c i have no boyfriend currently! Lol. The yawning is constant, my teachers probably think i hate their classes! But it is much better than Zoloft or Paxil In my opinoin.
